Mobile agent technology is a novel paradigm that comprises of program that implements a software agent. This program can suspend its execution on a host computer, transfer itself to another agent-enabled host on the network, and resume execution on the new host. These agents must be smart enough to act efficiently. Their major applications are in field of network management and load balancing. The objective of this paper is to propose a set of measures for evaluating the performance of a mobile agent. These measures may be used to check some aspect of mobile agent's quality.
