A Mass Storage System Administrator Autonomic Assistant
Friday, December 2, 2005, 8:30am - Friday, December 2, 2005, 10:00am
The goal is to use an autonomic assistant to substantially reduce the amount of time it takes to address specific problems in the system. The process of analyzing the amount of time saved will involve recording information on the types of errors occurring and consulting in detail with the responsible system administrators. The mechanisms suggested by the system administrators will produce an assistant that handles these tasks effectively. The results will show how efficiently and effectively the MSSAAA handled its assigned tasks, and how it has eased the daily burden of system administrators at a major high performance computing center.
