    ABSTRACT: This paper describes creation an autonomous failure-resistant multi-agent file storage, resistant against failure of hardware on certain number of its servers. We analyze multi-agent systems and ways the files are downloaded in computer networks. An agent system is analyzed, designed and implemented. The purpose of this system is to run on outdated servers and/or personal computers. Access to files and storage is realized through web browser and download manager. There is also an independent diagnostic tool implemented for this system.

    ABSTRACT: MOSIX is a cluster management system that supports preemptive process migration. This paper presents the MOSIX Direct File System Access (DFSA), a provision that can improve the performance of cluster file systems by allowing a migrated process to directly access files in its current location. This capability, when combined with an appropriate file system, could substantially increase the I/O performance and reduce the network congestion by migrating an I/O intensive process to a file server rather than the traditional way of bringing the file's data to the process. DFSA is suitable for clusters that manage a pool of shared disks among multiple machines. With DFSA, it is possible to migrate parallel processes from a client node to file servers for parallel access to different files. Any consistent file system can be adjusted to work with DFSA. To test its performance, we developed the MOSIX File-System (MFS) which allows consistent parallel operations on different files. The paper describes DFSA and presents the performance of MFS with and without DFSA.
