Lease-based Decentralized Resource Management in Open Multi-Agent Systems

D. G. A. Mobach, B. J. Overeinder, O. Marin, and F. M. T. Brazier, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

A distributed management architecture is proposed for Internet-scale, open, distributed agent middleware systems. The management architecture presented supports the autonomy of both agents and middleware resources, incorporating an agent-initiated contract negotiation model for resource allocation and access. A leasing mechanism infrastructure designed and implemented for this purpose is presented.
