In this paper, the authors present a common pedestal to Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks and distributed computing environment. An Agent Pedestal for LOad Balancing (APLOMB) for P2P systems is main focus in which mobile agents are used to manage the network. It provides common solution to P2P system's fault tolerance and load balancing problems and gives true distributed computing environment with the help of mobile agents. APLOMB is component of adaptation manager of the NADSE which supports code mobility over the mobile/fixed peer device. They also present a comparative study of the NADSE, Gnutella, and Freenet.
