Abstract

Computer systems no longer operate in centralized isolated static environments. Technological advances, such as smaller and faster hardware, and higher reliability of networks have resulted in the growth of mobility of computing and the need for run-time adaptability and reconfigurability. However, mobile and roaming users need to dynamically adapt to local system configurations to order to fully utilize resources currently available, such as a fast network connection, an available colour printer etc. In order to provide support for this type of application, a dynamic resource manager supporting indirect resource requests and runtime reconfigurability is essential. This paper proposes a new dynamic resource management architecture, MAGNET, to provide run-time adaptability for mobile applications. MAGNET enables the dynamic trading of resources which can be requested indirectly by the type of service they offer, rather than directly by their name. In addition, MAGNET enables runtime user-customized adaptation to services.
