My initial attempt for the first 7.

   Availability
    If a service offered by a service provider can be consumed by a service
consumer,
    the service is available to the consumer.  Availability = -log(1-ta/T),
where
    log is 10 based, ta is available time, and T is total time. For example,
if a 
    service is available in 99% of time, its availability is 2. 
       
          
   Configuration
     The collection of properties that can be changed during deployment time
     and run time.
          
   Control 
     Send management operations to a server.
          
   Management capabilities
     Each management capability is identified by a URI, which represents a 
     management operation or metrics.
          
   Management operation
     An operation that causes the change of server life-cycles or value of
metrics.
             
   Performance Monitoring
     Tracking performance metrics, which is usually a function of time, and
number of
     life cycle events of requests.
          
   Resource Accounting
     A management capability that provides quantitative information about
service
     resources.

Hugo has asked us to provide some management terms for the glossary:
6. Management terms

   Availability

   Configuration

   Control

   Management capabilities

   Management operation

   Performance Monitoring

   Resource Accounting

   Security Administration

   Security Auditing

   Service Level Agreements

   Usage Auditing

   Usage Tracking

We should also define:
      Manageability

      Management

      Manager

I think its not burden if we divvy this up - only 3 apiece.
I'll open this up for volunteers, If we don't have volunteers I'll
assign them randomly during our Wed call next week.

Thanks!

Hi Heather.

As discussed during last week's face-to-face meeting, this is an email
to notify you, as head of the MTF, that I have noted in the Web
Services Glossary that the definitions of management terms were
assigned to the MTF and to give you a pointer to the
management-related definitions missing:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-arch/2002Oct/0195.html

Thank you.

Regards,

Hugo
