The ETTK is continuing to incubate certain important autonomic computing technologies. The latest is the Autonomic Task Manager for Administrators, which was just released. Unlike many of our autonomic technologies, the Autonomic Task Manager for Administrators is not geared to application developers who want to build in autonomic computing functions. Rather, this technology addresses administrators who are confronted with many administration and management tasks that they find can be automated. The Task Manager provides a way a scripting system management tasks via a speadsheet-based model. Spreadsheet templates can be modified to easily create a new automated task, visualize it and get real-time system data feeds. This new ETTK package is applicable to a very wide spectrum of system management scenarios and is well worth checking out.
