There are many approaches that can be applied to the management of wireless sensor networks (WSN) and nowadays the research in this field is only beginning. A management approach determines how the management monitor and control functions are performed by the network and network elements. Since a wireless sensor network presents severe resource constraints, a certain management approach must be chosen properly in order to optimize resource usage and at the same time satisfy the application requirements. In this paper we try to answer the following question: what is the tradeoff between to migrate management services or to adopt traditional approaches for WSN management? We have concluded from simulated and experimental results that the choice of the best approach to be adopted must consider the size of the network, the configuration of the nodes, the application goals and the management complexity, in terms of managed objects. We have also noticed that, despite the service migration approach being theoretically interesting for WSN management, for the sensor networks and sensor nodes hardware current technological situation, the approach would be applied with some negative impact on the performance of the network.
