Summary:
The increasing complexity of current computing infrastructures makes the management of these systems a challenging and error-prone task. In recent years, the notion of architecture-based management has emerged as a remedy to this situation. Architecture-based management promotes the use of formal or semi-formal system descriptions as a guideline for various management functions.

This talk presents the basic concepts of software architecture and surveys recent advances in  architecture-based management, in the following areas:

(a) deployment, configuration and reconfiguration; and (b) autonomic reaction to overload or failure. These notions are illustrated by examples drawn from current research.
