1.  Introduction

   This document aims to provide a reference framework for Operations,
   Administration and Maintenance (OAM) for Computing in the Network
   (COIN).  The framework describes a tripartite consultation mechanism
   which includes consumers/providers registration, resource discovery/
   allocation, resource occupation, and resource release/refund.

2.  Aspects Monitored by COIN OAM?

   In this framework, the device and platform will be regarded as a
   consumer or a provider of a computing power.  One and the only
   manager will be responsible for the management of computing power and
   the contracts between consumers and providers.

2.1.  Computing Power Consumer

   Computing Power Consumer (or CPC, for short) is an application that
   needs computing power from the network.  As a consumer, the
   application instance must register to CCM and be assigned a node id,
   which is a unique identifier in a COIN system.

2.2.  Computing Contract Management

   Computing Contract Manager (or CCM, for short) is an application that
   is responsible for register administration of all the CPCs, CPPs and
   the Algorithm Repository.  It can connect the consumers of computing
   power and the providers of computing power.  It also signs the
   contracts for both sides.

2.3.  Computing Power Provider

   Computing Power Provider (or CPP, for short) is an application that
