With the proliferation of new networking technologies, and the demand for new services, it become increasingly difficult to manage large-scale networks with the traditional client/server management system. Discovering and keeping track of the topology of a network is essential for effective network management. In this paper we introduce a distributed algorithm for discovering the network topology using mobile agents. The approach offers a more distributed and scalable solution, and is therefore, a significant improvement over the C/S-based scheme
