Abstract

The increasing heterogeneity, dynamism, and uncertainty of emerging DCE (Distributed Computing Environment) systems imply that an application must be able to detect and adapt to changes in its state, its requirements, and the state of the system to meet its desired QoS constraints. As system and application scales increase, ad hoc heuristic-based approaches to application adaptation and self-management quickly become insufficient. This paper builds on the Accord programming system for rule-based self-management, and extends it with model-based control and optimization strategies. This paper also presents the development of a self-managing data streaming service based on online control using Accord. This service is part of a Grid-based fusion simulation workflow consisting of long-running simulations, executing on remote supercomputing sites and generating several terabytes of data, which must then be streamed over a wide-area network for live analysis and visualization. The self-managing data streaming service minimize data streaming overheads on the simulations, adapt to dynamic network bandwidth, and prevent data loss. An evaluation of the service demonstrating its feasibility is presented.
