Self-managing systems will be highly dependent upon information acquired from disparate applications, devices, components and subsystems. To be effectively managed, such information will need to conform to a common model. One standard that provides a common model for describing disparate computer and network information is the Common Information Model (CIM). Although CIM defines the models necessary for inferring properties about distributed systems, its specification as a semi-formal ontology limits its ability to support some important requirements of a self-managing distributed system including knowledge interoperability and aggregation, as well as reasoning. To facilitate the interoperability and aggregation of CIM-based knowledge, as well reasoning over such knowledge, there is a need to model, represent and share CIM as a formal ontology. In this paper, we propose a framework for constructing a formal CIM ontology based on previous research that identified mappings from UML to ontology language constructs.
