Mobile agent (MA)-based network management and policy-based network management are new methods to manage the network. They both have their strong points and weaknesses. This paper integrated policy-based NM into MA-based NM, and built a prototype to test its performance. We found that with this prototype, we could build an automatic network management system with good security and mobility. It would ease the management of the increasing complex network.
