Performance Analysis of Parallel Client-Server Model Versus Parallel Mobile Agent Model
Source: Shivaji University
Mobile agent has motivated the creation of a new methodology for parallel computing. The authors introduce a methodology for the creation of parallel applications on the network. The proposed Mobile-Agent parallel processing framework uses multiple Java-mobile agents. Each mobile agent can travel to the specified machine in the network to perform its tasks. They also introduce the concept of master agent, which is Java object capable of implementing a particular task of the target application. Master agent dynamically assigns the task to mobile agents. They have developed and tested a prototype application: Mobile Agent Based Parallel Computing.
