Mobile Agent Communication Mechanism Using Sub-Server
Source: Sungkyunkwan University
Mobile agent is important in mobile agent based distributed environment. The mobile agent performs a per pose through accesses to resources of the remote host by migrating from one host to another host or interactions between agents. Therefore communications between the mobile agents is important. However, there are communication failures problem and message forwarding errors due to the mobile agent's properties. Hence, communication protocol requires location-transparency, reliability, high-efficiency, asynchrony and self-adaptability and there are mechanisms to satisfy the requirements.
