Benchmarking the Resilience of Self-Adaptive Systems: A New Research Challenge



Self-adaptive systems are widely recognized as the future of computer systems. Due to their dynamic and evolving nature, the characterization of self-adaptation and resilience attributes is of upmost importance. The problem is that nowadays there is no practical way to characterize self-adaptation capabilities or to compare alternative solutions concerning resilience. In this paper we discuss the problem of resilience benchmarking of self-adaptive systems. We start by identifying a set of key challenges and then propose a research roadmap to tackle those challenges.
