Locating and Repairing Faults in a Network with Mobile Agents [chapter]

Colin Cooper, Ralf Klasing, Tomasz Radzik
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Some nodes in the network may be faulty and the agents are to find the faults and repair them.  ...  We consider a fixed, undirected, known network and a number of "mobile agents" which can traverse the network in synchronized steps.  ...  In other scenarios only the "content" part of the agent (the "repair kit") may have to be sacrificed to fix a fault, while the "carrier" part can remain mobile and can communicate with other agents, or  ...

FANTOMAS Fault Tolerance for Mobile Agents in Clusters [chapter]

Holger Pals, Stefan Petri, Claus Grewe
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We examine fault tolerance with regard to properties and requirements of mobile agents, and find that independent checkpointing with receiver based message logging is appropriate in this context.  ...  In this context, mobile agents are of growing interest as base for distributed and parallel applications.  ...  In contrast, in applications where a large number of agents are sent out to search and process information in a network, the loss of one or several mobile agents might be acceptable.  ...

Scalable Fault-Tolerant Location Management Scheme for Mobile IP

JinHo Ahn, Sung-Gi Min, ChongSun Hwang
2001 Australasian Journal of Information Systems  
As the number of mobile nodes registering with a network rapidly increases in Mobile IP, multiple mobility (home or foreign) agents can be allocated to a network in order to improve performance and availability  ...  The CML scheme achieves low failure-free latency even if the number of mobility agents in a network increases, and improves scalability to a large number of mobile nodes registering with each network compared  ...  It means that if a mobile node has registered with a foreign agent in a network and the agent fails currently, the mobile node can re-register with another foreign agent in the same network [Perkins (  ...

Automation of Cellular Network Faults [chapter]

Okuthe P., Johnson I.
2011 Cellular Networks - Positioning, Performance Analysis, Reliability  
A MIA agent is a JADE-LEAP agent, which is a mobile agent with autonomy and high degree of collaboration.  ...  In contrast, static multiple servers require duplication of functionality at every location. Mobile agents carry the functionality with them, so it does not have to be duplicated.  ...  The Section 3 contains two Chapters and deal with reliability issues of wireless cellular networks.  ...
