Abstract : This thesis focuses on the construction of self-administrable systems, i.e; systems that react to the occurrence of events, such as hardware and
software faults, performance degradation, etc. Building such systems requires both a well-adapted software technology and dedicated algorithms.
oncerning the software technology, we propose a new approach to the construction of radically configurable software architecture, called exoware. This approach, insipired by the exokernel philosophy, aims at
minimizing the number of abstractions_ functional, non functional and architectural _ imposed to the application developer. we illustrate the concept of exoware with the presentation of DREAM, a component-based software framework for the construction of asynchronous communication
Concerning the algorithms required for building autonomous systems, a classical approach based on control theory, is to deploy control loops in
charge of the supervision and administration of the managed system. In this thesis, we describe two contributions to the design of such control loops :
LeWYS, a component-based framework dedicated to the construction of monitoring systems and FREECAST, a group communication prototcol implementing uniform total order broadcast. Moreover, we show how the various software elements described in the thesis can be integrated into JADE, a framework for automatic system management developed by the SARDES
