A Network Management Framework Using Mobile Agents
Network management of heterogeneous networks is still hard to achieve automatically and efficiently. In this paper, the authors present a framework that has the ability to perform network management tasks on heterogeneous networks using mobile agents. This framework handles the inability of many network devices to run mobile agents. While the main focus of the project is the framework, they present an example of mobile agents that are able to locate a fixed set of network failures and detect the possible causes accurately.
