Optimizing Distributed Test Generation
This paper presents two optimizations of the master-slave paradigm which provides more robustness. The former uses a mobile master which randomly jumps from node to node in order to dispatch the bandwidth load during the application execution. The latter aims to fully decentralize the paradigm like peer-to-peer systems. We present and experiment our new schemes on an application dedicated to test generation used in protocol engineering. We show that they can help for unknown dynamic environments where no information is given about nodes configuration.
