Diagnosing unwanted behaviour in Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) is crucial to ascertain agents’ correct operation. However, generation of MAS models is both error-prone and time intense, as it exponentially increases with the number of agents and their interactions. In this paper, we propose a light-weight, automatic debugging-based technique, coined ESFL-MAS, which shortens the diagnostic process, while only relying on minimal information about the system. ESFL-MAS uses a heuristic that quantifies… CONTINUE READING
