The aims of this research are to introduce a new transparent control paradigm and to consolidate Grid resources by a statistical approach based on Agents and on Queuing Theory. These goals are obtained through the creation of a new category of Agents called "Prophet Agents" with an agent-based peer-to-peer framework named JADE, created using the Java programming language. The goal of Prophet Agents inside a Grid is to estimate workload and completion time of a given job class in a specific class of servers. Moreover, agents are used to automate the "matchmaking" process and to consolidate Grid resources by adding new computing servers if necessary.
