Resource Monitoring to Support Mobile Agents in Pervasive Computing
Brooks, Chad A. & Krishnaswamy, Shonali (2004) Resource Monitoring to Support Mobile Agents in Pervasive Computing. In Intelligent Agents, Web Technology and Internet Commerce, 12-14 July 2004, Gold Coast, Australia.
Mobile agents are a form of software agents that migrate from device to device, performing their job in an unobtrusive manner. Mobile agents are particularly useful for pervasive computing as they are lightweight processes that allow for the delegation of tasks, have migratory characteristics, and operate regardless of whether the device they are on is connected to the network. However, in order to facilitate the full potential of mobile agents in pervasive environments, it is evident that there is a need for mobile agents to be resource-aware. To this end, we propose a model for a Resource Aware Middleware for Mobile Agents (RAMMA). We present the conceptual architecture of RAMMA, its implementation and an evaluation of the resource utilisation patterns of the monitor itself.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
