This paper describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of interagent communication and synchronization models in the DaAgent mobile-agent based computing system. Based on the requirements of some sample Internet computing applications, eight system-level models of interagent communication and synchronization are proposed. A new synchronization mechanism called location synchronization that is relevant for interacting mobile agents is also proposed. This paper evaluates the eight models based on their utility, performance, level of communication and synchronization support, and applicability in the Internet computing environment. A prototype implementation and detailed performance evaluation of these models based on two interacting, multiagent applications are also presented.
