Abstract. This paper analyzes the performance differences between static and mobile multiagent systems. To do so, we developed solutions to a distributed text search problem, each using a different approach to multiagent systems (static versus mobile) on an isolated test network. Changes were then made to the agent environment, various constraints applied, and the resulting effect on the systems measured. Each system was evaluated using a number of performance metrics to demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of the respective approach
