In this paper, a three level load balancing architecture for Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) is discussed. We designed a hybrid model in order to provide balance in load distribution on each host and agent. Each host has a load balancing coordinator (LBC) to monitor states of agents' load and message traffic. When a load imbalance occurs in the system, LBCs decide appropriate solution levels. Thus, load balancing is guaranteed.
