Abstract:
Most general-purpose work towards autonomic or self-managing systems has emphasized the front end of the feedback control loop, with some also concerned with controlling the back end enactment of runtime adaptations but usually employing an effector technology peculiar to one type of target system. While completely generic 'one size fits all' effector technologies seem implausible, we propose a general-purpose programming model and interaction layer that abstracts away from the peculiarities of target-specific effectors, enabling a uniform approach to controlling and coordinating the low-level execution of reconfigurations, repairs, micro-reboots, etc.
