BIO-INSPIRED DATA PLACEMENT IN PEER-TO-PEER NETWORKS - Benefits of using Multi-agents Systems

Hugo Pommier, Benoît Romito, François Bourdon

Abstract

In this paper we present the benefits of using a multi-agents system to manage the data placement in a decentralized storage application. In our model, after a fragmentation step, each piece of data is associated to a mobile agent making its own decisions. To manage agents placement, we apply flocking rules in a peer-to-peer network called SCAMP. Each agent follows simple rules and the emerging behavior is a flock of fragments. To provide an efficient load-balancing, agents drop pheromones among network peers. We made some experiments to measure the cohesion degree of our flock and to measure the network coverage of a flock. We also discuss about availability and reliability of our approach.
