Self-* and Predictability: are these conflicting System Capabilities?

de Lemos, Rogério (2004) Self-* and Predictability: are these conflicting System Capabilities? In: Proceedings of the International Workshop on Self-* Properties in Complex Information Systems (SELF-STAR 2004). . pp. 105-108. ISBN 978-3-540-26009-7.


In principle, it would have been desirable for any

system to have self-* capabilities when faced with

changes that might occur either in the system or its

environment. However, these capabilities are

difficult to incorporate in certain classes of systems,

mainly those in which uncertainties in their

behaviours are not desirable. In this position paper,

we discuss how the expected degree of autonomy of

a system is related to the way in which a system can

be described. The discussion is presented in the

context of predictability and the assurances

associated with the accuracy of that predictability.

The subject of this paper are those systems known

to be critical in the services they deliver, and which

cannot incorporate high degree of uncertainty.
