Deployment of mobile agents in network-based applications has attracted lots of attentions in recent years. How to control the activities of agents is crucial for effective application of mobile agents. This paper focuses on the application of mobile agents in network routing. Two important activity properties of mobile agents are identified: the probability of success (the probability of finding the destination) and the distribution of mobile agents running in the network. To our knowledge, little work has been done on these two aspects. Our results show that the number of mobile agents can be controlled by adjusting the number of agents generated per request and the number of jumps each mobile agent can move. Thus, we can improve network performance by tuning relevant parameters.
