An event-driven, multithreaded programmable system permits the network system operator to write concurrently-executing network policies for causing operations to be performed on a computer network in response to changes in state of the computer network. Changes in state are reported to the policy implementation system by monitors interfaced with the network operating system. A policy interpreter scans, screens and parses the network policy statements and builds data structures for managing the multithreaded system in response to state changes supplied by the monitors. The policy interpreter executor issues commands to action engines which in turn cause operations to be performed on the network.
