Mobile Agents for Management of Native Applications in GRID

Aversa, R; Martino, B Di; Donini, R; Venticinque, Salvatore
Abstract:
Mobile Agents technology can be exploited to develop mobile Grid services. Here we present a Grid service for jobs management, implemented by Mobile Agents. Grid users can exploit the service by a WSRF interface being unaware about agents technology. A console has been designed to interface user applications with agents. Programmers are able to extend their applications with the ability to be check-pointed, suspended, resumed, cloned, dispatched. It can be done simply by adding some methods to their code, which specialize management on occurrence of particular events. We mean that applications do not need to be rewritten into different languages or adopting specific programming models. We realized a prototype implementation for management of native applications.
