    • 4. Growing Complexity…
      • Very large scales
        • million of entities
      • Ad hoc (amorphous) structures/behaviors
        • p2p/hierarchical architecture
      • Dynamic
        • entities join, leave, move, change behavior
      • Heterogeneous
        • capability, connectivity, reliability, guarantees, QoS
      • Unreliable
        • components, communication
      • Lack of common/complete knowledge
        • number, type, location, availability, connectivity, protocols, semantics, etc.
    • 5. Convergence of IT and BT
      • Our system programming paradigms, methods and management tools seem to be inadequate for handling the scale, complexity, dynamism and heterogeneity of emerging future network and systems
      • Biological systems have evolved strategies to cope with dynamic, complex, highly uncertain constraints
      • Recently, some research area of IT is applying biological system concept to solve its unsolved problems
    • 6. Autonomic Computing
      • Autonomic
        • Pertaining to an on demand operating environment that responds automatically to problems, security threats, and system failures
        • Cf) self-adaptive, self-governing, self-managing, …
      • The term “autonomic” is derived from human biology – autonomic nervous system
        • ANS monitors heartbeat, body temperature, …
          • Without any conscious effort on one’s part!
      • Nature has evolved to cope with scale, complexity, heterogeneity, dynamism and unpredictability, lack of guarantees
        • self configuring, self optimizing, self healing, self protecting, highly decentralized, heterogeneous architectures that work !!!
      • The goal of autonomic computing is to use appropriate solutions based on current state/context/content based on specified policies
    • 7. Autonomic Computing Attributes
      • Self-managing systems that deliver
      Increased Responsiveness Adapt to dynamically changing environments Business Resiliency Discover, diagnose, and act to prevent disruptions Operational Efficiency Tune resources and balance workloads to maximize use of IT resources Secure Information and Resources Anticipate, detect, identify, and protect against attacks
    • 8. Architecture concepts
      • Autonomic computing system
        • A computing system that senses its operating environment
        • Models its behavior in that environment
        • And takes action to change the environment or its behavior
    • 9. Architecture details
      • Autonomic Manager
        • Implementation that automates some management function and externalizes this function according to the behavior defined by management interfaces

    • 10. Architecture details
      • Multiple autonomic managers for multiple resources
        • Autonomic managers are arranged in hierarchical fashion
        • Lower-level managers deal with resources at smaller granularity and/or smaller locality
      • Top-level autonomic manager:
        • Business decision-making
        • Policy and service levels
      Hierarchical Autonomic Systems
    • 11. Architecture details

    • 12. Architecture details
      • Autonomic manager is a component that implements the control loop
        • Monitor Function
          • the function that collects, aggregates, filters and reports details (e.g. metrics, topologies)
        • Analyze Function
          • the function that models complex situations to understand current system state.
        • Plan Function
          • the function that structures the actions needed to achieve goals and objectives.
        • Execute Function
          • the function that changes the behavior of the managed resource using effectors.
