A Heap-Based P2P Topology and Dynamic Resource Location Policy for Process Migration in Mobile Clusters
A mobile cluster experiences disruption in execution of long-running applications due to its highly dynamic nature. Process migration handles such dynamism to have seamless computing with minimal disruption. The challenge in process migration is that it should take considerably less time and techniques adopted for static networks are not suitable for mobile networks. This paper is a novel effort that organizes the cluster as a heap-based super P2P structure and process state is transferred in terms of object migration between the peers. Also, while migrating processes, load balancing is dynamically done.
