In this paper, we present a Protocol Switching(PS) Scheme to find efficient agent migration strategy for developing network management application. The purpose of the proposed scheme is to set up the best migration plan of mobile agent in order to minimize network execution time. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, we designed a network traffic estimation model for three distributed paradigms i.e RPC(Remote Procedure Call), mobile agent and mobile agent with locker pattern, and we evaluated PS scheme by simulation
