    A shared distributed infrastructure is formed by federating computation resources from multiple domains. Such shared infrastructures are increasing in popularity and are providing massive amounts of aggregated computation resources to large numbers of users. Meanwhile, virtualization technologies, at machine and network levels, are maturing and enabling mutually isolated virtual computation enviro... View full abstract»

    The increasing heterogeneity, dynamism and uncertainty of emerging DCE (Distributed Computing Environment) systems imply that an application must be able to detect and adapt to changes in its state, its requirements and the state of the system to meet its desired QoS constraints. As system and application scales increase, ad hoc heuristic-based approaches to application adaptation and self-managem... View full abstract»

    Although autonomic computing reduces traditional operational cost, it introduces another cost factor related to operation knowledge. This paper focuses on self-healing functionality and proposes a technique which improves reusability of component-level operation knowledge for self-healing systems. Operation knowledge which attains reusability becomes independent of a specific system structure and ... View full abstract»

    Autonomic Computing lays out a vision of information technology in which systems manage themselves based on policies. As a result, policies are the new currency of interaction between people and computers, creating a new paradigm for interaction with autonomic systems. In this paradigm, interaction shifts (1) from low-level to high-level monitoring and control and (2) from manually performing acti... View full abstract»

    Application classification techniques based on monitoring and learning of resource usage (e.g. CPU, memory, disk and network) have been proposed to aid in resource scheduling decisions. An important problem that arises in application classifiers is how to decide which subset of numerous performance metrics collected from monitoring tools should be used for the classification. This paper presents a... View full abstract»

    Event processing systems link event producers and consumers in a flexible manner, by supporting multiple communication patterns and powerful message transformations. Such systems support both loosely coupled communication patterns, such as one-to-one or one-to-many and tightly coupled (request-response) patterns. An important concern in these systems is the allocation of resources used to support ... View full abstract»

    Reinforcement Learning (RL) provides a promising new approach to systems performance management that differs radically from standard queuing-theoretic approaches making use of explicit system performance models. In principle, RL can automatically learn high-quality management policies without an explicit performance model or traffic model and with little or no built-in system specific knowledge. I...

  • Risk-Aware Limited Lookahead Control for Dynamic Resource Provisioning in Enterprise Computing Systems

    Utility or on-demand computing, a provisioning model where a service provider makes computing infrastructure available to customers as needed, is becoming increasingly common in enterprise computing systems. Realizing this model requires making dynamic and sometimes risky, resource provisioning and allocation decisions in an uncertain operating environment to maximize revenue while reducing operat...

    In service oriented systems, Quality of Service (QoS) is a service selection driver. Users evaluate QoS at run time to address their service invocation to the most suitable provider. Thus, QoS has a direct impact on providers' revenues. However, QoS requirements are difficult to satisfy because of the high variability of Internet workloads. Workload variability cannot be accommodated with traditio... View full abstract»

    The need for self-healing software to respond with a reactive, proactive or preventative action as a result of changes in its environment has added the non-functional requirement of adaptation to the list of facilities expected in self-managing systems. The adaptations we are concerned with assist with problem detection, diagnosis and remediation. Many existing computing systems do not include suc... View full abstract»

    Preventive system maintenance is one of the important measures to assure the key elements of autonomic computing such as adaptation, healing and protection. However, existing preventive maintenance methods do not meet the necessary requirements of their application into practice. In this paper, we propose a new preventive maintenance approach, termed preventive rejuvenation, that makes up some def... View full abstract»

    Traditional High Performance Computing systems require extensive management and suffer from security and configuration problems. This paper presents a new cluster-management system, called Evil Man, that aims at making clusters as secure and self-managing as possible. Evil Man is inspired by real-life Laundromats: All nodes in a cluster are configured with a minimal software base consisting of a V... View full abstract»
