Server systems (Internet, database, news, etc.) is a very active industry in the communication area. Tuning servers is currently done with the experience and the feeling of human operators with potential problems like under-optimality or even trashing phenomena in case of bad tuning. The NeCS team has started research on that subject in collaboration with the INRIA-Sardes team for using control theory tools in closed loop server systems and especially for controlling their admission. This goes in the direction to fully autonomous servers in completely heterogeneous aggregation of servers.
