We show how the SWAN system has been implemented using a multi-agent system. SWAN is peer-to-peer look-up system that functions by letting the participating nodes self-organise in a virtual Small World Network. The multi-agent system we are using is DIET, a lightweight ecologically inspired agent platform. We describe how the test application can be implemented, and present experiments in which the application runs on a cluster of computers. Our results show that the system is robust to failure… CONTINUE READING
