Abstract

In an On-demand utility based model, there is a need to dynamically provision resources by the service provider whenever there is a possibility of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) breach. Descibed is a mechanism for providers of an on-demand hosting model to autonomically predict the potentiality of a service level agreement breach, and take corrective action to prevent such an occurence.
