Abstract: Mobile agent technology has been applied to develop the solutions for various kinds of parallel and distributed computing problems. However, performance evaluation of mobile agent algorithms remains a difficult task, mainly due to the characteristics of mobile agents such as distributed and asynchronous execution, autonomy and mobility. This paper proposes a general approach based on direct execution simulation for evaluating the performance of mobile agent algorithms by collecting and analyzing the information about the agents during their execution. We describe the proposed generic simulation model, named MADES, the architecture of a software environment based on MADES, and a prototype implementation. A mobile agent-based distributed load balancing algorithm has been used for experiments with the prototype.
