Abstract

Mobile agents are defined as processes which can be autonomously delegated or transferred among the hosts in a network in order to perform some computations on behalf of the user and co-operate with other agents. Currently, mobile agents are used in various fields, such as electronic commerce, mobile communication, parallel processing, search of information, recovery, and so on. In pure P2P network environment, if mobile agents that require computing resources rashly migrate to another peers without consideration on the peer's capacity of resources, the peer may have a problem that the performance of the peer is degraded due to lack of resources. To solve this problem, we propose resource reservation based load balancing scheme of using RMA(Resource Management Agent) that monitors workload information of the peers and that decides migrating agents and destination peers. In mobile agent migrating procedure, if the resource of specific peer is already reserved, our resource reservation scheme prevents other mobile agents from allocating the resource.
