SIP Policy: Theoretical and Conceptual Facts of Software Rejuvenation in Convoluted System

Nagaraj G Cholli, Srinivasan G N


A software aging in convoluted system refers to the situation where software degrades with span of time. This phenomenon, which may eventually lead to system performance degradation or crash/hang failure, is the result of depletion of operating system resources, data deception and numerical error assembly. A technique called software rejuvenation has been incorporated, which essentially involves periodic aborting an application or a system, flushing its intramural state and re-starting it. A main issue in rejuvenation is to discover ideal time to initiate software rejuvenation. Software rejuvenation is a proactive technique that allows preventing the occurrence of software failing. A novel approach called Smart interval and payload (SIP) policy is introduced to overcome all the hurdles in the present scenario based on Software Rejuvenation approaches. SIP policy accepts time from user and optimizes the rejuvenation time whenever workload is variable; otherwise the system is rejuvenated at its rejuvenation point. SIP policy avoids software failure and it helps to achieve high availability of convoluted system.
