    Reinforcement learning is a promising new approach for automatically developing effective policies for real-time self-management. RL can achieve superior performance to traditional methods, while requiring less built-in domain knowledge. Several case studies from real and simulated systems management applications demonstrate RL's promises and challenges. These studies show that standard online RL ... View full abstract»

    The authors' distributed cooperative-control framework uses concepts from optimal control theory to adaptively manage the performance of computer clusters operating in dynamic and uncertain environments. Decomposing the overall performance-management problem into smaller subproblems that individual controllers solve cooperatively allows for the scalable control of large computing systems. The fram...

    Self-management in accordance with high-level objectives that users can specify is a hallmark of autonomic computing systems. The authors advocate utility functions as a principled, practical, and general way of representing such objectives. In an effort to bring the promise of utility-based frameworks to the marketplace, they describe how they've implemented them in two commercial products so as ... View full abstract»

    Being able to visualize both spatial and nonspatial data is becoming increasingly important to today's Internet users. Spatial data viewers and query tools can aid in visualization, but they should also let users access data instantly and with minimal effort. The authors explore new ways to allow visualization of data stored in a central server database on a simple client. They also consider usage... View full abstract»

    Developers often use replication and caching mechanisms to enhance Web application performance. The authors present a qualitative and quantitative analysis of state-of-the art replication and caching techniques used to host Web applications. Their analysis shows that selecting the best mechanism depends heavily on data workload and requires a careful review of the application's characteristics. Th... View full abstract»

    The IETF's open pluggable edge services (OPES) working group focuses on rule-based, in-line transformation services of data flows between two Internet endpoints, such as Web servers and Web clients. The group has developed an architectural framework to authorize, invoke, and trace such application-level services. The framework follows a one-party consent model, which requires that at least one of ... View full abstract»

    Workflows are used in scientific, engineering, industrial, legal, and business applications to process many kinds of data, such as genomes, supply chains, and mailing lists. Workflows that involve thousands to millions of files and up to terabytes of data are a challenge that grid computing is tackling. Another challenge is how to automate the specification of large workflows to avoid human error ... View full abstract»

    Net neutrality - the issue of whether ISPs should be allowed to give (or, more likely, sell) higher-performance access to content or services from certain providers - has been a hot Internet public policy issue in the US. Some network owners (such as Bell South and SBC) indicate that they'd like to charge large content providers (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, eBay, Amazon, and so on) extra in order to...

    This paper discusses the representational state transfer (REST) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) debate. The author tries to explain REST from the viewpoint of someone steeped in SOA, with the intention of helping SOA people understand the value the REST camp so rightfully touts View full abstract»

    In a previous paper, the author described where he thought the Web would be headed over the next few years. He speculated that the trend seemed to be toward the semantic Web, although maybe not via the shortest path of directly deploying semantic Web technologies such as RDF and OWL. For this paper, he presents some concrete examples of technologies that support this prognosis. One key idea of the... View full abstract»

  • Possible Ontologies: How Reality Constrains the Development of Relevant Ontologies

    For years, ontologies have been known in computer science as consensual models of domains of discourse, usually implemented as formal definitions of the relevant conceptual entities. Researchers have written much about the potential benefits of using them, and most of us regard ontologies as central building blocks of the semantic Web and other semantic systems. Unfortunately, the number and quali... View full abstract»
