A proposal for an enhanced mobile agent architecture (EMA)

Gabriel Stoian, Claudiu Popirlan

Abstract


Mobile agents become increasingly important in the highly distributed applications frameworks seen today. Their migration from node to node is a very important issue as we need to safeguard application efficiency, achieve better load balancing and resource utilization throughout the underlying network. This paper presents an enhanced mobile agent architecture based on the regular one by adding some components related to synthetic information about past activities of mobile agent and which subsequently can lead to an improvement of its future activities. We prove the benefits of the proposed architecture considering an adequate case study and providing experimental results.
