This paper illustrates the results of a research effort to apply mobile agent technology in network management for the frame relay network The paper implemented a Java based mobile agent network management approach in the frame relay network by using Teema, a unique agent execution platform. The agent network management performance is simulated in a number of scenarios. It is then contrasted with the SNMP client-server paradigm. The bandwidth expenditure and cost in each scenario is compared and contrasted to the client-server paradigm. The results in the paper suggest that mobile agent technology is well suited to address some client-server management paradigm limitations on frame relay network topology and that the agents have better performance in a series of cases.
