Event-based control: a way to reduce reconfiguration in autonomic computing

Nicholas Marchand, GIPSA lab, France


Presentation slides

My talk will focus on a new control techniques called event-based control. This approach recently developed differs from classical control in the sense that the control value is updated only when needed. Reducing the number of control update often means for systems in the computer science domain a reduction of system reconfiguration. The talk will focus on the practical use of this new technique to control the service time of an Hadoop MapReduce cluster. A comparison between classical control and event-based control will be given.
