A proposal to apply inductive logic programming to self-healing problem in grid computing: How will it work?


  • A shorter version of this paper (A Proposal of Prediction and Diagnosis in Grid Computing Self-Healing Problem) was presented at LAGrid09.


As computation systems get extremely large and complex, failure diagnosis becomes even more complex. To cope with this ever increasing complexity of managing heterogeneous systems—such as grids and nowadays clouds—systems should manage their own behavior themselves. This vision of self-managing systems also referred to as autonomic computing (AC) aims to allow systems to recover themselves from various failures or malfunctions. This is known as self-healing (SH) and is one of the requirements of AC. However, dealing with these complex failure scenarios is always an open challenge. Dealing with this challenge requires prediction and control through a number of automated learning and proactive actions. In this work, we present the usage of a relational learning method known as inductive logic programming, for prediction and root casual analysis, and the development of an SH component.
