Title: Method for monitoring and managing a client device in a distributed autonomic computing environment

Abstract: A stale of a managed client device in a distributed autonomic computing environment is attached to an event occurring on the managed client device. The event is sent, with the attached state of the managed client device, to a server. The state of the managed client device is saved at the server. The event is analyzed for identifying a problem at the client device. An action for solving the problem is generated based on a state of the managed client device at the time the event is analyzed. An execution condition is dynamically generated based on the saved state of the managed client device. The execution condition is added to the action to be executed and sent to the managed client device. At the managed client device, a determination is made whether to execute the action based on the execution condition and a current state of the managed client device.
