A multi-agent system can greatly increase performance and reliability of a system due to several reasons like distributed nature, responsiveness to environment, and the ability for reuse. These characteristics are associated with multi-agent systems due to their flexible and intelligent nature. All these capabilities do not come without challenges. One of the biggest challenges that arises due to the dynamic behavior of multi-agent systems is the difficulty to quantify their reliability and dependability, or in other words performance. This article discusses agents and multi-agent systems, their classification according design parameters, multiple methods of performance quantization, and factors which affect them.
