Mobile Agents Based Collective Communication: An Application to a Parallel Plasma Simulation

Abstract:
Collective communication libraries are widely developed and used in scientific community to support parallel and Grid programming. On the other side they often lack in Mobile Agents systems even if message passing is always supported to grant communication ability to the agents. Collective communication primitives can help to develop agents based parallel application. They can also benefit social ability and interactions of collaborative agents. Here we present a collective communication service implemented in the Jade agent platform. Furthermore we propose its exploitation to interface transparently heterogeneous executions instances of a scientific parallel application that runs in a distributed environment.
