Abstract: Distributed systems are complex systems and there are a lot of the potential risks in the system, so system administrators need to have some effective support tools for network management. The architecture information of distributed systems is an essential part of distributed system monitoring solutions, because it provides general information about monitored objects in the system for administrators, as well as supports administrator in quickly detecting change of topology, error status or potential risks that arise during operation of distributed systems. The modeling approaches have an important role in developing monitoring solutions, in which they are background to develop algorithms for monitoring problems in distributed systems. This paper proposes an approach in order to model for hierarchical architecture of objects in distributed systems, in which consists of architecture of monitored objects, networks, domains and global distributed systems. Based on this model, a basic monitoring solution for hierarchical architecture of distributed systems is developed and this solution is able to provide administrators more important architecture information such as the topology of hardware components, processes, status of monitored objects, etc.
