In order to implement cross-organizational workflows and to realize collaborations between small and medium enterprises (SMEs), the use ofWeb service technology, Service-Oriented Architecture and Infrastructure-as-a- Service (IaaS) has become a necessity. Based on these technologies, the need for monitoring the quality of (a) the acquired resources, (b) the services offered to the final users and (c) the workflow-based procedures used by SMEs in order to use services, has come to the fore. To
more » ... ckle this need, we propose four metric Quality Models that cover quality terms for the Workflow, Service and Infrastructure layers and an additional one for expressing the equality and inter-dependency relations between the previous ones. To support these models we have implemented a cross-layer monitoring system, whose main advantages are the layer-specific metric aggregators and an event pattern discoverer for processing the monitoring log. Our evaluation is based on the performance and accuracy aspects of the proposed cross-layer monitoring system.
