A network inference tool for JADE-based systems

Abstract [en]

This article describes the first version of a tool designed to infer the network characteristics of JADE-based multiagent systems. The rationale behind the tool is that systems in general and multiagent system in particular, often have some hidden dynamics that contribute to the emergence of desired and undesired characteristics. Traditional sniffing tools simply display the message exchange. The presented tool goes therefore beyond simple message sniffing and infers the agents' network based on the ongoing interactions and codifies it a format suitable for further processing in specialized network analysis tools. In particular the prosped tool identifies the most frequently used communication links and the messages associated with them. To demonstrate the behavior of the tool an exploratory system based on the Evolvable Production System paradigm is discussed and analyzed.
