RESOURCE SHARING AND LOAD BALANCING BASED ON AGENT MOBILITY

Abstract

From the recent improvements in network and peer-to-peer technologies and the ever-growing needs for computer might, new ways of sharing resources between users have emerged. These methods are very diverse, from SETI@HOME which is a way to share the load of analysing the data from space in order to find traces of extraterrestrial life, to NAPSTER and its successors, and to Real-time video-games. However, these technologies allow only centralised calculus-sharing, even if they already offer ”peer-to-peer” sharing of data. We present in this paper a method based on Multiagent systems which allow load-sharing between distant users.
