The two query methods sure believes and poss believes check whether the query formula, an AnsProlog ∗ term, is contained in all the computed answer sets, or there exists at least a single answer set containing it respectively. Before the query formula is processed by the module, all the free variables occurring in it are substituted by their valuations and subsequently, the query method attempts matching the remaining free variables with a term from a computed answer set. The update interface methods add and del provide a means to assert, or retract a clause (a fact, or a rule) to/from the stored knowledge base.
Eﬀect of the increasing number of ﬂights simulated with ﬁxed hardware resources, measured in terms of the total duration of the simulation (Chart A) and run-time per normalized airplane (Chart B) The aggregated results of the experiment are depicted in Figure 5 showing the correspondence between the total duration of the simulation and the number of ﬂights. Chart A shows the maximum duration is less than 13 minutes for 100% of ﬂights. Chart B shows run-time needed to simulate one normalized airplane.
After re-partitioning, all state updaters which no longer belong to their currently assigned ESC partition are subsequently migrated to the appropriate ESC. Re-partitioning is not performed during each simulation cycle but only if the diﬀerence in state update evaluation times by all ESCs exceed a pre-deﬁned threshold. The re-partitioning is also triggered whenever a new computer node is allocated to environment simulation. The load of computer nodes running deliberative components is balanced only when new deliberative components are instantiated.
