Abstract
This paper proposes an agent-based distributed
replica allocation and management technique, where
each agent maximizes its own benefit, such as, user
access time, latency and communication cost. The
technique gathers inspiration from market economy and
game theoretical mechanism designs. In such
mechanisms the agents do not have a global view of the
system, which makes the optimization process highly
localized. This local optimization may encourage these
agents to alter the output of the resource allocation
mechanism in their favor and act selfishly. The proposed
technique guarantees a global optimal solution even
though the system acts in a distributed fashion operated
by self-motivated selfish agents. The mechanism is
