Abstract

See full text

A system and method for dynamically processing a network event using an action set in a distributed computing environment are described. The occurrence of a network event is sensed via a sensor thread through receipt of a message indicating a network event occurrence, the message including event data pertinent to the network event. A generate daemon via a generate thread is launched responsive to a notification from the sensor process. An event mapping is retrieved by the generate daemon. The event mapping corresponds to the network event and identifies an action set. A generated action set is generated from the event mapping by the generate daemon and the generated action set is enqueued onto an event queue within which can be queued a plurality of generated action sets which each correspond to an instance of an action set. A process daemon is launched via a process thread responsive to a notification from the generate daemon. The generated action set is retrieved from the event queue by the process daemon and the generated action set is processed by causing the execution of at least one action embedded therein.
