Management Area
The management area covers specifications which support the management of Grid resources, and of distributed resources in general.

The "Glue WG" works on an abstract information model (GFD.147), which allows to describe and relate distributed compute, communication and storage resources, thereby facilitating interoperability between different Grid middleware components.

The "Usage Record WG" (UR) and the "OGSA Resource Usage Service WG" (RUS) both work on resource accounting: the service defined by RUS stores and manages resource usage records defined by UR (GFD.98)

The former "Configuration Description, Deployment and Lifecycle Management WG" (CDDLM) worked on GFD.127, a document which discusses application management topics in Grids.
