This paper introduces the concept of dynamic hierarchical management, enabled by mobile agent (MA) technology. The proposed framework addresses the scalability limitations of the centralised paradigm and the poor flexibility of static hierarchical management architectures to changing networking conditions. The increased adaptability of our framework is enabled by a novel management entity, termed mobile distributed manager (MDM), MDMs, being MAs themselves, can dynamically migrate to an assigned network domain (given that certain requirements are met) and undertake its management responsibility, operating at an intermediary level between the central manager and SNMP agents, localising the associated management traffic. The paper also focuses on the design decisions and implementation experiences of the proposed architecture
