In cloud computing, detecting violations of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) is possible by measuring certain metrics, which can be done by both the provider and the consumer of a service. However, both parties have contradicting interests with regards to these measurements, which makes it difficult to reach consensus about whether SLA violations have occurred. Within this paper, we present a solution for measuring and arbitrating SLA violations in a way that can be trusted by both parties.
