We consider autonomic applications to systems for which continuous perfect monitoring of state is not possible. We use Exact-State Observers (ESO) to provide enhanced information about the system state. To achieve optimal configuration of the autonomic controller itself, over a wide range of environmental operating conditions, and across a wide range of unique application domains, we implement a new architecture for dynamic supervision and control systems in which a policy-based autonomic engine automatically selects both its monitoring and actuator components to suit ambient operating conditions.
By using a suite of ESOs tuned for different tradeoffs between realtime responsiveness and extent of system disturbance tolerated, and a policy mechanism to contextually select the most appropriate observer at any given time, we achieve self-configuring and selfoptimising
behaviours whilst keeping the complexity, resource requirements and adaptation latency low.
