This document provides a problem statement and general gap analysis
for an IP-based Autonomic Network that is mainly based on distributed
network devices.  The document provides background by reviewing the
current status of autonomic aspects of IP networks and the extent to
which current network management depends on centralization and human
administrators.  Finally, the document outlines the general features
that are missing from current network abilities and are needed in the
ideal Autonomic Network concept.
