Towards Manageable Mobile Agent Infrastructures



This paper addresses the problem of managing distributed mobile agent infrastructures. First,the weaknesses of current mobile agent implementations will be discussed and identi?ed from the manageabilit viewpoint.The solutions devised and experimented in order to alleviate these weaknesses in our own agent platform will then be presented.These solutions are generic and could easily be applied to the majorit of existing mobile agent implementations.The paper will ?nish with the discussion of a new approach we are following in the M&M Project,based on a rather different architecture that signi ?cantly reduces the manageabilit requirements.
