helps multi-agent system developers to understand the impact of topology on system efficiency and effectiveness. Appropriate topology analysis enables the adoption of suitable frameworks for the specific multi-agent systems. In this paper, we propose a novel hybrid topology for distributed multi-agent systems, and compare the performance of this topology with two other common agent network topologies within the new multi-agent framework, Agent-based Open Connectivity for DSS (AOCD). Three major aspects are studied for estimating topology performance, which include (i) transmission time for a set of requests; (ii) waiting time for processing requests; and (iii) memory consumption for storing agent information.
