It may appear that for software systems that require strict real-time behavior, the idea of incorporating self-management (and specifically concepts from Autonomic Computing) may add the burden of excessive additional functionality and overhead. However, our experience is that, not only does real-time software benefit from autonomicity, but also the Autonomic Computing initiative (like other initiatives aiming at self-management) requires the expertise of the real-time community in order to achieve its overarching vision. In particular, there are emerging classes of real-time systems for which incorporation of self-management is absolutely essential in order to implement all of the requirements of the system, and in particular the timing requirements.
