Distributed storage systems play a pivotal role in modern data-intensive applications, with Hadoop distributed file system (HDFS) being a prominent example. However, optimizing the efficiency of such systems remains a complex challenge. This research paper presents a novel approach to enhance the efficiency of distributed storage by leveraging multi-agent systems (MAS). Our research is centered on enhancing the efficiency of the HDFS by incorporating intelligent agents that can dynamically assign storage tasks to nodes based on their performance characteristics. Utilizing a decentralized decision-making framework, the suggested approach based on MAS considers the real-time performance of nodes and allocates storage tasks adaptively. This strategy aims to alleviate performance bottlenecks and minimize data transfer latency. Through extensive experimental evaluation, we demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach in improving HDFS performance in terms of data storage, retrieval, and overall system efficiency. The results reveal significant reductions in job execution times and enhanced resource utilization, there by offering a promising avenue for enhancing the efficiency of distributed storage systems.
