Network services in the future Internet are required to be highly available, ubiquitous, self-managing, and adaptable to dynamic environments. A promising way to implement such network services is combining mobile agent approaches with ecosystem-inspired evolutionary approaches. However, this perspective is still far from being practically implemented. An important reason is a lack of fundamental theory on macrodynamics of mobile agents in the new paradigm. This paper considers a type of large-scale mobile agent system and discusses the macrodynamics mainly affected by mobile agents' migration behaviors in the systems. The study benefits not only the design of composite services emerged from mobile agents in a type of ecosystem-inspired network architecture but also the future deployment of an Internet-scale system that holds myriads of mobile agents, hosts, and migratory behaviors of mobile agents.
