            Autonomic Networking: Definitions and Design Goals


   Autonomic systems were first described in 2001.  The fundamental goal    is self-management, including self-configuration, self-optimization,    self-healing, and self-protection.  This is achieved by an autonomic    function having minimal dependencies on human administrators or    centralized management systems.  It usually implies distribution    across network elements.

   This document defines common language and outlines design goals (and    what are not design goals) for autonomic functions.  A high-level    reference model illustrates how functional elements in an Autonomic    Network interact.  This document is a product of the IRTF's Network    Management Research Group.
