Abstract

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 countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
