Exploiting Non-Determinism for Reliability of Mobile Agent Systems

  title={Exploiting Non-Determinism for Reliability of Mobile Agent Systems},
  author={Ajay Mohindra and Apratim Purakayastha and Prasanna Thati},
Mobile agents are useful for certain classes of applications. One important technical hurdle blocking their adoption is their lack of reliability. Designing a reliable mobile agent system is especially challenging since a mobile agent is potentially a ected by failure of any host that it visits, or failure of any communication link that it needs to traverse. Previous work in this domain has attempted techniques such as periodic checkpointing of mobile agent state and restarting upon machine or… CONTINUE READING
