Distributed Network Management

Mangers of Managing Agents
  • Dragan Nikolik


In our review of the basic enterprise paradigms, we have been certainly lured by the advantages offered by global networking. It promised the efficiency due to economies of scale and resource sharing, and ease of communications among end-users within the enterprise, just to name few features we have dreamed of. However, the moonlighting eventually stops there, since there exists the other, darker side of the moon, when it comes to integrating and managing enterprise networks. Even though thousands and thousands of enterprises struggle “out there”, the enterprise networking is progressing at full speed ahead. However, getting enterprise networks work in an open multi-vendor environment the way we desire looks more like pioneering an unknown trail, than driving on an intercity highway.
