    We describe an architectural approach to achieving the goals of autonomic computing. The architecture that we outline describes interfaces and behavioral requirements for individual system components, describes how interactions among components are established, and recommends design patterns that engender the desired system-level properties of self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing an...

    The emergence of pervasive wide-area distributed computing environments, such as pervasive information systems and computational grids, has enabled new generations of applications that are based on seamless access, aggregation and interaction. However, the inherent complexity, heterogeneity and dynamism of these systems require a change in how the applications are developed and managed. In this pa... View full abstract»

    One of the primary motivations behind autonomic computing (AC) is the problem of administrating highly complex systems. AC seeks to solve this problem through increased automation, relieving system administrators of many burdensome activities. However, the AC strategy of managing complexity through automation runs the risk of making management harder. We performed field studies of current administ... View full abstract»

    Managing the configuration of computer systems is a difficult task. Too easily, a computer user or administrator can make a simple mistake and misconfigure a system, causing instabilities, unexpected behavior, and general unreliability. Bugs in software that changes these configurations, such as installers, only worsen the situation. A self-managing configuration system should be continuously moni... View full abstract»

    We present a decision tree learning approach to diagnosing failures in large Internet sites. We record runtime properties of each request and apply automated machine learning and data mining techniques to identify the causes of failures. We train decision trees on the request traces from time periods in which user-visible failures are present. Paths through the tree are ranked according to their d... View full abstract»

  • File classification in self-* storage systems

    To tune and manage themselves, file and storage systems must understand key properties (e.g., access pattern, lifetime, size) of their various files. This paper describes how systems can automatically learn to classify the properties of files (e.g., read-only access pattern, short-lived, small in size) and predict the properties of new files, as they are created, by exploiting the strong associati...

    Computer systems hosting critical e-commerce applications must typically satisfy stringent quality-of-service (QoS) requirements under dynamic operating conditions and workloads. Also, as such systems increase in size and complexity, maintaining the desired QoS by manually tuning the numerous performance-related parameters will become very difficult. This paper addresses the design of self-optimiz... View full abstract»

    Computer systems are becoming extremely complex due to the large number and heterogeneity of their hardware and software components, the multilayered architecture used in their design, and the unpredictable nature of their workloads. Thus, performance management becomes difficult and expensive when carried out by human beings. An approach, called self-managing computer systems, is to build into th... View full abstract»

    Utility functions provide a natural and advantageous framework for achieving self-optimization in distributed autonomic computing systems. We present a distributed architecture, implemented in a realistic prototype data center, that demonstrates how utility functions can enable a collection of autonomic elements to continually optimize the use of computational resources in a dynamic, heterogeneous...

    Pervasive computing envisions a world with users interacting naturally with device-rich environments to perform various kinds of tasks. These environments must, thus, be self-managing and autonomic systems, receiving only high-level guidance from users. However, these environments are also highly dynamic $the context and resources available in these environments can change rapidly. They are also p... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the design of adaptive middleware to support autonomic computing in pervasive computing environments. The particular problem we address here is how to support self-optimization to changing network connection capabilities as a mobile user interacts with heterogeneous elements in a wireless network infrastructure. The goal is to enable self-optimization to such changes transpare... View full abstract»

    Desktop grids have recently been used to perform some of the largest computations in the world and have the potential to grow by several more orders of magnitude. However, current approaches to utilizing desktop resources require either centralized servers or extensive knowledge of the underlying system, limiting their scalability. We propose a biologically inspired and fully-decentralized approac... View full abstract»

    We describe an approach to self-managing software patching. We identify visibility into patch impact as the key missing component in automating the current patching process, and we present a suite of components that provides this visibility by constructing black-box persistent-state manifests through self-monitoring of dependencies. Additionally, we use the component suite to measure the actual im... View full abstract»

    In distributed and mobile environments, the connections among the hosts on which a software system is running are often unstable. As a result of connectivity losses, the overall availability of the system decreases. The distribution of software components onto hardware nodes (i.e., deployment architecture) may be ill-suited for the given state of the target hardware environment and may need to be ...

    With the continuously improving price-performance ratio, building large, smart-brick based distributed storage system becomes increasingly attractive. The challenges, however, include not only reliability, adequate cost-performance ratio, online upgrades and so on, but also the system's ability to achieve these goals in as self-managing and self-adaptive a manner as possible. In this paper, we des... View full abstract»
