This work proposes a probabilistic management paradigm for solving some major challenges of decentralized network management. Specifically, we show how to cope with 1) the overhead of redundant information gathering and processing, 2) the decentralized management in dynamic and unpredictable environments, and 3) the considerable effort required for decentralized coordination of management functions. To this end, we describe a framework for probabilistic decentralized management in the context of in-network management (INM). We demonstrate how this framework can be applied to a network of information, a novel clean-slate approach towards an information-centric future Internet. We show by means of a simulation study in the area of performance and fault management that we can significantly reduce the effort and resources dedicated to management, while we are able to achieve a sound level of accuracy of the overall network view.
