The Power of Events

An Introduction to Complex Event Processing in Distributed Enterprise Systems

376 pages, parution le 29/05/2002


Complex Event Processing (CEP) is a defined set of tools and techniques for analyzing and controlling the complex series of interrelated events that drive modern distributed information systems. This emerging technology helps IS and IT professionals understand what is happening within the system, quickly identify and solve problems, and more effectively utilize events for enhanced operation, performance, and security. CEP can be applied to a broad spectrum of information system challenges, including business process automation, automating schedule and control, network monitoring and performance prediction, and intrusion detection.

The Power of Events introduces Complex Event Processing and shows specifically how this innovative technology can be utilized to enhance the quality of large-scale, distributed, enterprise systems. It describes the challenges faced by today's information systems, explains fundamental CEP concepts, and highlights CEP's role within a complex and evolving contemporary context. After thoroughly introducing the concept, the book moves on to a more detailed, technical explanation of CEP, featuring the Rapide event pattern language, reactive event pattern rules, event pattern constraints, and event processing agents. It offers practical advice on building CEP-based solutions that solve real world IS/IT problems.

Readers will learn about such essential topics as:
  • Managing the open electronic enterprise in the "global event cloud"
  • Process architectures and on-the-fly process evolution
  • Events, timing, causality, and aggregation
  • Event patterns and event abstraction hierarchies
  • Causal event tracking and information gaps
  • Multiple views and hierarchical viewing
  • Dynamic process architectures
  • The Rapide event pattern language
  • Event pattern rules, constraints, and agents
  • Event processing networks (EPNs)
  • Causal models and event pattern maps
  • Implementing event abstraction hierarchies
Two comprehensive case studies—one the real-time monitoring of events flowing between the business processes of collaborating enterprises, and the other, a hierarchically organized set of event-driven views of a financial trading system—illustrate the benefits of CEP, as well as key strategies for applying the technology. A case study applying CEP to network viewing and intrusion detection is also presented. The book concludes with a look at building an infrastructure for CEP, showing how the technology can provide a significant competitive advantage to the myriad of event-driven, Internet-based applications now coming onto the market.
