The development of Grid Computing technologies, dynamic resource sharing is becoming an increasingly important issue in the area of distributed, heterogeneous network. In this paper, an approach for dynamic runtime load balancing based on mobile agents is introduced. This involves a migration of active agents between hosts in order to utilize distributed system resources to the best possible level. Service provisioning agents are continuously reachable and overloaded hosts can reposition the agents to other, less loaded hosts at any time.
