Abstract:

Achieving high service availability is a key requirement when deploying service-based applications over ad hoc networks. Without high availability, reliable service execution cannot be achieved. Ad hoc network characteristics like ever-changing topology and limited resources are the main challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve high availability. In this work we introduce our service distribution protocol that aims to increase the availability of the services over ad hoc networks based on two mechanisms: a service replication and a service hibernation mechanism. These mechanisms are using measurements of both clients’ and providers’ interests in a specified service to obtain a good service distribution over participant nodes. A detailed simulation of our approach was done which shows promising results.
