IMANetMS - An Intelligent Mobile Agent-Based Network Management Approach for a Real Scenario

Joaquim Ricardo Azevedo Teixeira and Maria João Viamonte
Abstract—Current Network Management paradigms are rigid and lack flexibility. Therefore, a new kind of management system and strategy must be provided to enhance the reliability and performance of Network Management. This paper presents the results of our work on Mobile Agent technology as a new paradigm for developing Network Management applications. Problems existing in traditional Network Management are discussed and a distributed solution is proposed. In this new approach, Mobile agents are the lead characters, in a world where networks grow in a larger and complicated way. Finally, we present the results from an implemented architecture for a real network scenario. Our efforts resulted in IMANetMS, an Intelligent Mobile Agent Network Management System.

Index Terms—Mobile agents, network management, simple network management protocol.
