A dagent has associated resources that it may consume or use temporally and then recycle. Some resources may be shared with other dagents. Resources might include CPU, RAM, disk space, locks, and other peripheral devices like cdrom, tape drives, and printers. Dagents may share address space and name space with other dagents.
