Abstract: Mobile agent-based technology has attracted considerable interest in both academia and industry in recent years. Many agent-based execution models have been proposed and their effectiveness have been demonstrated in the literature. However, these models require a high overhead to achieve the reliable execution of mobile agents. In this paper, we propose a new mobile agent-based execution model. Extensive theoretical analysis on the population distribution of mobile agents is provided to evaluate the performance of our model. The analytical results reveal new theoretical insights into the fault-tolerant execution of mobile agents. Our model provides an efficient way to increase overall performance and a promising method in achieving mobile agent system reliability.
