    Peer-to-peer systems are distributed systems, the functioning and performance of which implicitly requires coordination and cooperation between peers. The problem has a lot in common with the creation of public goods in social and economic systems. Therefore, we will study, what are mechanisms, which support spontaneous cooperation and the development of commonly shared behaviors ("norms"). In thi... View full abstract»

    Server consolidation through virtualization is becoming an effective way to save power and space in enterprise data centers. However, it also brings additional operational risks for the consolidated system because the impacts of hardware failures, human errors, and security breaches can be vastly magnified in that densely packed environment. In order to mitigate the above issues, this paper propos... View full abstract»

    We present the Colored Power algorithm, which is designed to provide collaborative electricity demand shaping for residential and small-business customers. Demand shaping for this market sector is an important and challenging problem, since the vast number of such customers collectively account for a large fraction of total electricity consumption, yet each individual's consumption is small. Under... View full abstract»

    One of the major problems in managing large-scale distributed systems is the prediction of the application performance. The complexity of the systems and the availability of monitored data have motivated the applicability of machine learning and other statistical techniques to induce performance models and forecast performance degradation problems. However, there is a stringent need for additional... View full abstract»

  • Achieving Robust Self-Management for Large-Scale Distributed Applications

    Achieving self-management can be challenging, particularly in dynamic environments with resource churn (joins/leaves/failures). Dealing with the effect of churn on management increases the complexity of the management logic and thus makes its development time consuming and error prone. We propose the abstraction of robust management elements (RMEs), which are able to heal themselves under continuo... View full abstract»

    Many large-scale distributed systems have been built with great complexity to run Internet services. Due to the heterogeneity and dynamics of complex systems, it is very difficult to characterize their behavior precisely for system management. While we collect large amount of monitoring data from distributed systems as system observables, it is hard for us to interpret the data without constructin... View full abstract»

  • Distributed Creation and Adaptation of Random Scale-Free Overlay Networks

    Random scale-free overlay topologies provide a number of properties like for example high resilience against failures of random nodes, small (average) diameter as well as good expansion and congestion characteristics that make them interesting for the use in large-scale distributed systems. A number of these properties have been shown to be influenced by the exponent of their power law degree dist... View full abstract»

    In this paper a flexible self-reconfiguration mechanism for industrial mobile robots in car manufacturing is presented. Implemented in a holonic multi-agent system, user-inserted process changes are executed self-organised. Starting with a natural-language based description of the desired process change, an uncoupled recombination mechanism is the core part of the presented approach. The novel rec...

  • Planning with Utility and State Trajectory Constraints in Self-Healing Automotive Systems

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):74 - 83

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (277 KB)

    Planning is an important method in self-adaptive systems. Existing approaches emphasize the functional properties of the systems but do not consider possible alternative adaptations resulting in system functionality with different grades of quality. In compositional adaptation, the adaptation process should identify not only a feasible system configuration, but a good one. In safety-critical syste... View full abstract»

    Natural systems often exhibit, at a macro level, a tendency to order that emerges from simple and local interactions between the system components. This idea that the whole can denote a consistent behavior that is more than the sum of individual components has inspired the design and development of many artificial systems. Recently, with the pervasiveness of IT in the automation domain the applica... View full abstract»

  • Quantitative Emergence -- A Refined Approach Based on Divergence Measures

    The article addresses the phenomenon of emergence from a technical viewpoint. A technical system exhibits emergence when it has certain kinds of properties or qualities that are irreducible in the sense that they are not traceable to the constituent parts of the system. In particular, we show how emergence in technical systems can be detected and measured gradually using techniques from the field ... View full abstract»

    This paper considers an adaptive data dissemination scenario that applies an autonomic trust protocol to a network of agents. The protocol uses social network structures to incentivize cooperation. Validation is conducted through simulation of content sharing between peers which uses similarity of interest between peers to define payoff. Positive correlation is observed between the number of socia... View full abstract»

    In today's data-intensive world, the need for data organization has increased dramatically. Distributed systems are dealing with unheard amounts of data arising primarily from the popularization of pervasive computing applications and the so-called “data-in-the-cloud” paradigm. Naturally, agent-coordination systems are affected by this data-increase phenomenon as they are often used ... View full abstract»

    As semiconductor technology approaches the atomic scale, electronic systems are increasingly burdened by physical variations and uncertainty. Traditionally-designed systems lack an ability to adapt to these fine-grained effects and are thus becoming more inefficient, error-prone, and subject to early wear out. This paper describes the paradigm of physically-adaptive computing (PAC), in which syste... View full abstract»

    Sensor networks (SN) have arisen as one of the most promising monitoring technologies. The recent emergence of small and inexpensive sensors ease the development and proliferation of this kind of networks in a wide range of actual-world applications.1 So far the majority of SN deployments have assumed that sensors can be configured prior to their deployment because the area and events to monitor a...
