This paper proposes a new efficient mechanism for controlling and managing the resources within and around the active nodes: routers and switches that have a legacy SNMP management system. Existing system such as ABLE has an out-of- band management capability, which is insufficient for managing data flow as the flow progresses through the network. This paper proposes the use of the combined approach of SNAP and SNMP as an efficient network resource management mechanism on the FAIN active nodes. It has an in-band management approach in which each data flow will negotiate its next hop before it goes there; or it can create IPSec tunnels and modify routing table entries for the data flow.
