Abstract

Building dependable autonomic solutions has become a critical challenge for present IT firms. Building autonomic systems is hard since part of the administration's complexity has shifted from administration to systems. Although Autonomic computing can rely on numerous existing domains, methods and architectures are required. In this paper, we propose an architecture for building autonomic managers via the opportunistic collaboration of very specialized and coherent modules: administration tasks. In particular, we discussed the possibility of adapting the management dynamically depending on the context so has to produce resilient managers. We conclude this paper by presenting an example of such adaptation on a sample application pertaining to home automation.
