Abstract

Autonomic Management capabilities become increasingly important for attaining functional and quality goals in software systems. Nonetheless, successful Autonomic Management solutions must feature complex, adaptive behaviors, which remain difficult to conceive and control. This paper proposes a generic approach and a reusable framework for the construction of Autonomic Manager applications. The presented solution advocates creating Autonomic Management behaviors via the dynamic and opportunistic integration of individual management strategies. The provided framework proposes a general architecture and a common infrastructure for supporting the presented approach. A sample Autonomic Manager was built using the framework with several management strategies and was successfully tested in an experimental scenario.
