Abstract: Many distributed systems can be regarded as multi-agent systems (MASs) where some agents are connected to a network but located in different places. We consider severe situations where many causes of future agent failures in MASs are found simultaneously and consecutively owing to large-scale disasters. If a cause of future agent failure is not removed within a limited time, there is a high possibility that one of the agents will stop working. In order to find effective strategies that reduce the number of actual agent failures, we compare some repair-task-allocation strategies for MASs where sensing agents find causes of future agent failures and manager agents communicate with one another to allocate repair tasks to action-execution agents.
