From Autonomic Components to Autonomic Systems
Jeff Kephart, IBM Research

Abstract: The original vision of autonomic computing called for the development of large-scale autonomic computing systems that would manage themselves in accordance with high-level objectives specified by human administrators. During the last half-dozen years, thousands of autonomic computing research papers have been published by academic and industry researchers, but most of the attention has been devoted to smaller-scale autonomic components. The purpose of my talk is to call attention to the need for the autonomic computing research community to place a greater emphasis on the holistic vision of autonomic computing, which requires us to tackle the problem of coordinating the actions of multiple autonomic components into a coherent whole that achieves system-wide objectives. I believe that such research can be encouraged by building real large-scale environments that can be shared across research organizations, in which multiple autonomic components can interact, and by developing a set of realistic workloads that can be applied to them. I will try to engage the HotAC audience in a discussion of how we can build such a cross-organizational autonomic computing research platform.
