We implement CUILT, a scalable mix-and-match framework for Local Iterative Approximate Best-Response Algorithms for DCOPs, using the graph processing framework SIGNAL/COLLECT, where each agent is modeled as a vertex and communication pathways are represented as edges. Choosing this abstraction allows us to exploit the generic graph-oriented distribution/optimization heuristics and makes our proposed framework scalable, configurable, as well as extensible. We found that this approach allows us to scale to problems more than 3 orders of magnitude larger than results commonly published so far, to easily create hybrid algorithms by mixing components, and to run the algorithms fast, in a parallel fashion.
