We investigate an interaction mechanism between agents and data mining, and focus on agent-enhanced mining. Existing data mining tools use workflow to capture user requirements. The workflow enactment can be improved with a suitable underlying execution layer, which is a Multi-Agent System (MAS). From this perspective, we propose a strategy to obtain an optimal MAS configuration from a given workflow when resource access restrictions and communication cost constraints are concerned, which is essentially a constraint optimization problem. In this paper, we show how workflow is modeled in the way that can be optimized, and how the optimized model is used to obtain an optimal MAS configuration. Finally, we demonstrate that our strategy can improve the load balancing and reduce the communication cost during the workflow enactment.
