Service selection in pervasive environments is a challenging research domain as it enables the user to identify the best service provider based on its requirements. Fault Tolerant Service Selection Framework protects the pervasive environment from various faults thereby providing seamless service to the users. However, the effect of mobility of the service providers, users on the performance of the framework and the effect of load on the performance of the system is challenging and unexplored. Therefore in this paper, an attempt has been made to simulate a pervasive environment and analyze the effect of mobility and load on the Fault Tolerant Service Selection Framework. The experimental results show that mobility and load affects the performance of the system.
