         <h1><a name="QMFv2Architecture-Introduction"></a>Introduction</h1>

<p>QMF (Qpid Management Framework) is a set of APIs, in multiple programming languages,
that provide an abstraction for object-oriented and service-oriented remote management.  It
is layered on top of AMQP messaging and implemented using the Apache Qpid messaging APIs.</p>

<h1><a name="QMFv2Architecture-ArchitecturalComponentsandOperations"></a>Architectural
Components and Operations</h1>

<p>There are two central components in the architecture of QMF:  The <b>Agent</b>
and the <b>Console</b>.  An agent is a software component that is managed via
QMF and a console is a component that manages agents.  The distinction will become clearer
as we discuss operations.</p>

<p>A better way to describe <b>console</b> and <b>agent</b>
is to call them <em>roles</em>.  For example, a software program may perform the
<em>role</em> of <em>QMF Agent</em>, and therefore become manageable
via QMF.  Another program may act in the <em>role</em> of <em>QMF Console</em>
and manage some number of agents.  It is also possible for a software program to act in both
roles simultaneously and can do so using a single connection into the AMQP messaging infrastructure.</p>

<p>In QMF, there may be any number of agents and any number of consoles.  Agents and
consoles may appear and disappear dynamically.</p>
