The knowledge of existing grid resources and their characteristics is important for grid schedulers and resource brokers. In the paper, the authors have proposed a network management system for heterogeneous networks using autonomous, static and mobile agents. Stationary and mobile agents co-operate to form a swarm intelligence based network management system. Stationary agents perform network measurements on the particular node of a particular cluster. Mobile agents are used to initiate measurements collect data and perform recovery mechanisms. Both, stationary and mobile agents are managed by the Mobile Agent Generator (MAG). MAG plays a key role in management related activities like creating mobile agents, estimating cost functions. The predicted and the measured values prove the accuracy of the management system.
