Abstract

We disclose an improved resource provisioning mechanism. While prior art systems simply report that service level guarantees are not being met, this system also reports on its determination of why the guarantee is not being met. This allows the system component responsible for the provisioning to take targeted action to resolve the root cause of the failure to meet the guarantee, resulting in improved system behavior.
