Chameleon provides an adaptive infrastructure that supports different levels of availability requirements simultaneously in a single, heterogeneous, clustered environment using reliable, mobile and intelligent agents. These agents are capable of migrating through the network and operating autonomously on behalf of the fault tolerance manager (FTM) according to built-in specifications and instructions. The capabilities of Chameleon are demonstrated on a small local area network (LAN) of heterogeneous machines connected to the high-speed Myrinet switch.
