The field of resource sharing has become an increasingly important computing field of study for both industry and academia. Facilitating the use of geographically distributed resources is a complex task encompassing many sub tasks. The most important sub-tasks are advertising the available resources across the network and the discovery of these resources. In this paper, the task of advertising the resources has been studied from a network point of view. An advertisement model has been designed using multi-agent system techniques to achieve decentralization and to cope with the dynamic nature and behaviour of the system. The design has been implemented and tested under a simulation environment using the network simulator ns-2. The system evaluation has shown promising results in terms of the system performance itself and the effect of the advertising overhead on a working network's performance. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
