In this paper, basic concepts of mobile agent and resource management system are first described, and then traditional models of grid resource management system are discussed. Finally, a new grid resource management model based on mobile agent is proposed, meanwhile, an architectural model based on mobile agent for acquisition of grid information and an optimal algorithm for resource access are also put forward.
