Abstract

The existing limitation of a fixed predetermined set of product alerts does not allow for customers to build an autonomic distributed environment based on the autonomic computing paradigm. It now becomes advantageous for the customer to utilize the method described to create and generate custom alerts to build and maintain autonomic distributed environments, and to improve serviceability within those environments.
