Resource information managers typically use fixed approaches to manage information. However, fixed solutions to information management are complicated by the fact that computing environments are not all the same and even within a single computing environment the characteristics of the information and its access patterns may change over the lifetime of the system. These changes motivate this work to investigate an adaptive resource management mechanism that minimizes the communication overhead on a network of machines while providing resource information to clients. Our experience with a simulation study of various policies indicates a relatively simple adaptive mechanism works with further refinements needed.
