Abstract:
Pervasive computing as a new branch in the field of distributed computing has received wide contribution from different researchers. In this novel computing model, vast range of computational and communication resources along with other types of services are gathered under a single system image based on certain predefined criteria. Creating a transparent environment and providing the end-users with the illusion of local availability of multiple resources needs some kind of manager to coordinate the tasks and their required resources. The resource management system is mainly responsible for a balanced distribution of available resources among different tasks. Devising efficient resource discovery and dissemination algorithms is hence an important step towards preparing the bases for a resource centric management package. In this article we aim to provide two algorithms for this problem using mobile agents. The proposed resource discovery algorithms use two different hierarchical and flat approaches. The simulations show a good performance for both of the proposed models; however the hierarchical algorithm shows better results based on some of the introduced factors.
