This IBM Redbooks publication provides practical information related to problem determination using IBM Self-Managing Autonomic Technology, with an emphasis on the components provided by the IBM Autonomic Computing Toolkit.

The primary objective of this book is to empower software developers to provide facilities to enable applications or other system components to participate in an autonomic environment and focuses on the problem determination capabilities provided by the IBM Autonomic Computing Toolkit and other Self-Managing Autonomic Technology.

The tools, components, and techniques used and demonstrated in this book provide the base for automating problem determination and self-healing of applications and components using Self-Managing Autonomic Technology. As with the technologies themselves, components of the IBM Autonomic Computing Toolkit will evolve as new capabilities and tools become available. Software developers are encouraged to check the latest releases of both IBM Autonomic Computing Toolkit and other tools provided by IBM at
