The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) is proposed as a new solution for efficient configuration management of heterogeneous network devices. So the NETCONF-based distributed network management becomes a hot topic. In this paper, Web services and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technologies are introduced in distributed network management to solve the problems of data collection, data sharing and locating resources of NETCONF-based network management system. This paper aims to design a NETCONF-based distributed network management architecture using Web services and P2P technology, which including the communication between domain managers or between domain manager and agents.
