Dynamic object migration in logical networks


This paper presents a mechanism for migration of parts of computations in systems based on distributed objects or autonomous agents. In such systems load balancing and process migration can be achieved by migrating objects, or logical nodes, between participating computing nodes.

The presented migration mechanism uses minimal knowledge of the system topology and requires only a moved object to stop computing while in migration, which makes it usable in large distributed computations.
