Multi-agent Virtual Machine Management Using the Lightweight Coordination Calculus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


LCC is a Lightweight Coordination Calculus which can be used to provide an executable, declarative specification of an agent interaction model. In this paper, we describe an LCC-based system for specifying the migration behaviour of virtual machines within, and between datacentres. We present some example models, showing how they can be used to implement different policies for the machine allocation and migration. We then show how LCC models can be used to manage the workflows that involve creation and deletion of virtual machines when migrating services between different datacentres.
