The performance features of a massively multiagent system (MMAS) when applying the contract net protocol (CNP) are examined. The recent growth in the volume of e-commerce on the Internet is increasing the opportunities for coordinated transactions by agents, concurrently occurring everywhere. Because of limited CPU and network resources, running many interactive tasks among agents can lower the quality or efficiency of MMASs. Although CNP is a widely used negotiation protocol that can allocate tasks and resources to appropriate agents, it is unclear how effectively CNP works in an MMAS where thousands of agents work together and interfere with each other. The performance of CNP in such an MMAS, especially the overall efficiency and the reliability of promised completion times, is investigated by using an MAS simulation environment. The results show that only managerside control of CNP can improve performance in an MMAS.
