Due to the complexity and size of service oriented GRIDs, it is essential that GRID systems should be autonomous i.e. a self-management system is needed. This paper identifies the requirements of such a self-management GRID system and the required supporting services. This paper suggests that these supporting services should be deployed in the form of software modules through programmable techniques. This paper presents a communication protocol for dynamic self-configuration in programmable GRIDs as an example for supporting new network services.
