Maintaining Communication Channels for Migrating Processes in the Environment of Active Networks

T. Koutny and J. Safarik (Czech Republic)


Communications, active networks, and self-moving


We consider a distributed application consisting of processes, which self-control their movement in the network and which need to interact among themselves using communication channel as the base primitive for the interaction between two processes. The ends of such channel are described with unique ids of processes instead of addresses of nodes where they reside. Two main problems are how to ensure knowledge of valid addresses and how to reduce communication overhead. This paper focuses on these problems in the environment of Active Networks.
