Autonomic systems were first described in 2001.  The fundamental goal
is self-management, including self-configuration, self-optimization,
self-healing, and self-protection.  This is achieved by an autonomic
function having minimal dependencies on human administrators or
centralized management systems.  It usually implies distribution
across network elements.

This document defines common language and outlines design goals (and
what are not design goals) for autonomic functions.  A high-level
reference model illustrates how functional elements in an Autonomic
Network interact.  This document is a product of the IRTF's Network
Management Research Group.
