Abstract : Adaptation is an increasingly important requirement for software systems executing in large-scale, heterogeneous, and dynamic environments. A central aspect of the adaptation methodology is management of contextual information needed to support the adaptation process. A major design challenge of managing contextual data lies in the fact that the information is partial, uncertain, and inherently suitable for diverging interpretations. While existing adaptation solutions focus on techniques, methods, and tools, the challenge of managing and interpreting ambiguous contextual information remains largely unresolved. In this paper we present a new adaptation approach that aims to overcome these issues by applying fuzzy set theory and approximate reasoning. We have defined a knowledge management scheme that allows the interpretation of imprecise information and effectively integrated it into the adaptation feedback control loop. To test and evaluate our solution, we implemented it in an adaptation engine to perform rate control for media streaming applications. We show the benefits of our approach in terms of flexibility and performance when compared to more traditional methods, such as TCP-friendly rate control.
