Project Description

Phoeβe (/ˈfiːbi/) wants to add basic artificial intelligence capabilities to the Linux OS.

System-level tuning is a very complex activity, requiring the knowledge and expertise of several (all?) layers which compose the system itself, how they interact with each other and (quite often) it is required to also have an intimate knowledge of the implementation of the various layers.

Another big aspect of running systems is dealing with failure. Do not think of failure as a machine turning on fire rather as an overloaded system, caused by misconfiguration, which could lead to starvation of the available resources.

In many circumstances, operators are used to deal with telemetry, live charts, alerts, etc. which could help them identifying the offending machine(s) and (re)act to fix any potential issues.

However, one question comes to mind: wouldn't it be awesome if the machine could auto-tune itself and provide a self-healing capability to the user? Well, if that is enough to trigger your interest then this is what Phoeβe aims to provide.

Phoeβe uses system telemetry as the input to its brain and produces a big set of settings which get applied to the running system. The decision made by the brain is continuously reevaluated (considering the grace_period setting) to offer eventually the best possible setup.

Goal for this Hackweek

Work mostly on two main areas:

1) Rework the data engineering part of Phoebe to add tags/labels to individual data field to be used by the model;

2) Update the model according to the data re-engineering

3) Create a tool to assist Phoebe with data manipulation so to move away from CSV files

Stretch goal: have a proper lab setup to consistently test and validate Phoebe and generate data.

      I'd like to see if I could use Phoebe to tune samba settings (long term goal). So, this hackweek I think I'll just familiarize myself with Phoebe.

        That's awesome!!! A can see a new plugin coming to Phoebe :)

      Great one, Marco. Two points to consider:

      1. What are the top 4-5 settings to tune?
      2. What kind of data is available for the team in HackWeek to learn settings? (sourcing during Hackweek is probably not a viable option)

        Thanks for the feedback Markus! Will keep both points in mind.
