Summary The agent paradigm has been successfully used in a large number of research areas. MAPFS, a parallel file system, constitutes one successful application of agents to the I/O field, providing a multiagent I/O architecture. The use of a multiagent system implies coordination and cooperation among its agents. MAPFS is oriented to clusters of workstations, where agents are applied in order to provide features such as caching or prefetching. The adaptation of MAPFS to a grid environment is named MAPFS-Grid. Agents can help to increase the performance of data-intensive applications running on top of the grid.

This paper describes the conceptual agent framework and the communication model used in MAPFS-Grid, which provides the management of data resources in a grid environment. The evaluation of our proposal shows the advantages of using agents in a data grid.
