Anycast is a powerful paradigm for managing and locating resources in large scale distributed computing systems. This paper presents a novel specification-based anycasting scheme for resource discovery in such environments. The effectiveness of our proposal is demonstrated through simulation results, in which we observed a remarkable performance enhancement in different aspects (such as discovery latency, discovery cost, discovery load, etc.) over similar non-anycast based discovery methods.
