Distributed Network Management is gaining importance due to the explosive growth of the size of computer networks. New management paradigms are being proposed as an alternative to the centralised one, and new technologies and programming languages are making them feasible. The use of Mobile Agents (MAs) to distribute and delegate management tasks is a particularly promising approach to dealing with the limitations of current centralised management systems which appear to be lacking flexibility and scalability. This paper is focused on the impact that mobile code paradigms can have on distributed network and system monitoring. A dynamic, hierarchical management model based on a delegation paradigm is adopted and an MA-architecture for monitoring operations is proposed. Finally, possible uses of the proposed model and architecture for pursuing seamless and timely monitoring are discussed
