The monitoring of the quality of service in a multi-domain network supervises the multi-domain service performance. A multi-domain service is a service that crosses several domains which can be managed by different providers. Since, each domain can be managed with its own policies and may require confidential it of its topology and its monitoring processes, the authors propose that the monitoring architecture has to be configurable. In this paper, they propose two collaboration schemes that are based on the reactive and the proactive modes.
