this policy can be adapted to provide different levels of access control on the available machines. For

example, a user on a cluster is given full access to all ns2 project in Iowa cluster

nodes, but limited access to external systems. Another

example is deploying an authentication/authorization

policy for different access modes on the participating ns2 project in Iowa machines. In this section, we introduce and analyze a framework for an automated startup and configuration mechanism for a

hierarchical structure of the distributed agents in the system.

The startup stage is essential to guarantee the accurate and

efficient operation of the middleware infrastructure and the

applications using it. The main goal here is to provide system

startup and configuration with minimum user ns2 project in Iowa involvement. Anumber of issues such as how the agents are connected and

how they view one another are considered. The mechanism

for adding and removing agents from the system and their effect on the configuration are also studied. Three protocols

are introduced for automatic startup, leader recovery, and agent update. The distributed agents in the system need to communicate among themselves to perform their required operations.

However, the structure in which these agents are ns2 project in Iowa organized

has a strong impact on how efficient they operate. Within a

single cluster or a limited number of machines participating

in the system, a linear structure is sufficient for the agents to

communicate and achieve their functionality. However, this

requires agents to be fully connected, which may not

always be possible. In addition, the linear ns2 project in Iowa structure causes

considerable delays for some operations that need to be

performed on all participating machines. To overcome these

limitations, we designed a hierarchical structure where

agents have multilevel connections in the system. Generally,

a networked heterogeneous system composed of

clusters and multiprocessor machines ns2 project in Iowa forms the top level

of the hierarchy. Within each of these machines or clusters,

one or more levels may be formed, depending on the type

of machine and number of nodes/processors in it.


Leader agent (called leader hereafter): An agent that

manages and controls a set of other agents ns2 project in Iowa under its

control. Leaders at the same level communicate with

one another directly. 2. Regular agent (called agent hereafter): An agent that

performs the regular agent operations. Agents under

the control of the same leader should be able to

communicate with one another and their leader

directly. In addition, agents in different layers, but in

the same physical cluster (with direct links between

the nodes) communicate with one another directly. hierarchical structure

of a networked heterogeneous system, ns2 project in Iowa which we will refer

to in the rest of this section. The squares denote leader

agents, while the circles represent agents. Some ns2 project in Iowa machines

such as SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) or MPP (Massively

Parallel Processing) machines need a single agent to

handle the resources (e.g., leader 1), while others such as

clusters need an agent for each node. The connecting lines

represent bidirectional communication links between

nodes. However, at the top level of the ns2 project in Iowa hierarchy, the links

between leaders (e.g., 1, 2, and 3) may be a multihop path.
