One use of mobile agents is support for itinerant computation (D. Chess et al., 1995). An itinerant computation is a program that moves from host to host in a network. Which hosts the program visits is determined by the program. The program can have a pre-defined itinerary or can dynamically compute the next host to visit as it visits each successive host; it can visit the same host repeatedly or it can even create multiple concurrent copies of itself on a single host. Itinerant computations… CONTINUE READING
