Abstract

Introducing "Application Autonomic Agent" with which application programs can produce "situation information" to be passed to the autonomic manager, which in turn can tune the system resource and/or adjust the runtime environment to improve the throughput and performance of application processing. The information produced by this Agent is common across multiple platforms and middlewares as long as they run on IBM's JDK, thus it is possible to use a common autonomic manager to monitor and analyze the situation information which benefits to improve the autonomic manager's quality while keeping the cost reduced.
