In this paper, we present a framework that has the ability to perform network management tasks on heterogeneous networks. Our framework handles the inability of many network devices to run mobile agents. To cope with fast evolution, we present a modular approach that provides tools to build quickly network management agents to perform virtually any task. While the main focus of the project is the framework, we present an example of mobile agents that are able to locate a fixed set of network failure and detect the possible causes accurately.
