Distributed Control Loop Patterns for Managing Distributed Applications
2008 (English)In: SASOW 2008: SECOND IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SELF-ADAPTIVE AND SELF-ORGANIZING SYSTEMS WORKSHOPS, PROCEEDINGS / [ed] Serugendo GD, LOS ALAMITOS: IEEE Computer Society, 2008, 260-265 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we discuss various control loop patterns for managing distributed applications with multiple control loops. We introduce a high-level framework, called DCMS, for developing, deploying and managing component-based distributed applications in dynamic environments. The control loops, and interactions among them, are illustrated in the context of a distributed self-managing storage service implemented using DCMS to achieve various self-* properties. Different control loops are used for different self-* behaviours, which illustrates one way to divide application management, which makes for both ease of development and for better scalability and robustness when managers are distributed. As the multiple control loops are not completely independent, we demonstrate different patterns to deal with the interaction and potential conflict between multiple managers.
