In a service-oriented computer system, most resources are dedicated to operational service requests, but some resource must necessarily be devoted to maintenance and administration of the system. Known methods of resource allocation have serious drawbacks in such a system. The Quality of Service (QoS) allocated to administration tasks cannot be decided without sensing the state of the service system, and taking into account its relation to administration actions. Our method controls administration QoS based on this dependency.
