In this paper, we present an approach for adaptive replication to support fault tolerance. This approach uses a feedback control theory methodology within an adaptive replication infrastructure to determine replication degrees of replica groups. We implemented this approach in a multiagent system to survive Byzantine failures. At the end of the paper, we also provide some experimental results to show the effectiveness of our approach.
