Agentes para a automação da Administração de Sistemas:uma reflexão sobre Mobilidade, Autonomia e Distribuição

Hendrik T. MacedoGeber L. RamalhoCarlos A. G. Ferraz

Traditional network management activities follow a client-server approach which is completely centralized and uses a very simplistic notion of agents. A promising alternative approach is based on intelligent agents capable of taking decisions more autonomously and migrating between devices, allowing a more distributed management. This work discusses the impact that agent's properties as autonomy, mobility and distribution have in the development of management solutions. Thus, we have developed a simulator to test and evaluate different organizations of agents, varying such properties. The results we have got, for the chosen case study (the disk space management problem in UNIX/NFS machines), may be used as a guide to elaborate a methodology for construction of management systems based on mobile, autonomous and distributed agents.
