Abstract : Component-based platforms are widely used to develop and deploy distributed pervasive system that exhibit a high degree of dynam- icity, concurrency, distribution, heterogeneity, and volatility. This paper deals with the problem of ensuring safe yet efficient dynamic adaptation in a distributed and volatile environment. Most current platforms pro- vide capabilities for dynamic local adaptation to adapt these systems to their evolving execution context, but are still limited in their ability to handle distributed adaptations. Thus, a remaining challenge is to safely propagate reconfiguration policies of component-based systems to ensure consistency of the architecture configuration models over a dynamic and distributed system. In this paper we implement a specific algorithm rely- ing on the models at runtime paradigm to manage platform independent models of the current system architecture and its deployed configuration, and to propagate reconfiguration policies. We evaluate a combination of gossip-based algorithms and vector clock techniques that are able to propagate these policies safely in order to preserve consistency of archi- tecture configuration models among all computation nodes of the system. This evaluation is done with a test-bed system running on a large size grid network.
