SNMP is the most widely used network management protocol. Since SNMP is based on a centralized approach, it is confronted with scalability and efficiency problems when the network expands. XML-based network management is a new paradigm developed to overcome these limitations. In this paper, we propose a framework for adaptive load-balancing using JPVM for XML-based network management. The goal is to increase the efficiency of processing the management data, and decrease the communication time by distributing the management load across multiple XML/SNMP gateways. The load distribution among multiple gateways is adapted to achieve better results.
