The evolution of networks and Internet has introduced highly scalable and available services making operational environments more complex. The increasing complexity, cost and heterogeneity of distributed computing systems have motivated researchers to investigate new ideas to cope with the management of this complexity. One such idea is autonomic computing. This paper provides a thorough survey of autonomic computing systems, presenting their characteristics, effects on quality factors, their…
