Abstract
Dependable computer systems hosting critical com-
merce, transportation, and military applications, among
others, must satisfy stringent quality-of-service (QoS)
requirements. However, as these systems become in-
creasingly complex, maintaining the desired QoS by
manually tuning the numerous performance-related pa-
rameters will be very difficult. This paper devel-
ops a generic online control framework to design
self-managing computer systems. The proposed ap-
proach explores a limited region of the system
state-space at each time step and decides the best con-
trol action accordingly. We present two case studies
to demonstrate the practicality of the proposed con-
trol framework.
