Contents Operating large scale computer systems is a very challenging task: hardware failures, new software releases, variable application profiles and usage patterns, misconfigurations, security attacks and scaling problems all belong to a problem domain for which human intervention is still inevitable. In this lecture series we will investigate the (rather broad) research scope of autonomic computing (IBM's research and product initiative) as well as autonomic communications (EU Future and Emerging Technologies research program). Ultimately, computer systems should become self-configuring, self-diagnosing and self-healing. The goal of these lectures is to unravel some of the problems and complexity, explore existing management frameworks and analysis tools, and present current research efforts and directions towards this vision. This course includes mandatory exercices on system configuration, use of network management tools as well as large systems simulations.
