ABSTRACT
Swarms of mobile software agents, imitating the behav-
ior of insects, can solve complex tasks. Such agents in-
dividually have simple behavior. However, as a collec-
tive unit, constructive behavior emerges, as it does in in-
sect colonies. The problem we address is optimizing the
distribution of objects with partial replication over a com-
puter network. We present a new approach, implemented
as a prototype, based on swarm intelligence. The system
performs dynamic, event-driven, distributed load balanc-
ing. Every node of the network is capable of producing
new events and introducing them into the network for com-
