Titel / Title: Directory scalability in multi-agent based systems
Abstrakt Abstract:

Simulation is one approach to analyze and model the real world complex problems. Multi-agent based systems provide a platform to develop simulations based on the concept of agent-oriented programming. In multi-agent systems, the local interaction between agents contributes to the emergence of the global phenomena by getting the result of the simulation runs.

In MABS systems, interaction is one common aspect for all agents to perform their tasks. To interact with each other the agents require yellow page services from the platform to search for other agents. As more and more agents perform searches on this yellow page directory, there is a decrease in the performance due to a central bottleneck.

In this thesis, we have investigated multiple solutions
for this problem. The most promising solution is to
integrate distributed shared memory with the directory
systems. With our proposed solution, empirical analysis shows a statistically significant increase in performance of the directory service. We expect this result to make a
considerable contribution to the state of the art in multiagent platforms.
