Configuration management is an integral part of the network management effort. ATM network configuration management must support the creation, modification, and termination of virtual path and channel connections, provide ILMI support for neighboring nodes, and support interface and buffer management for intermediate systems. Currently, permanent virtual circuits (PVCs) are established manually by creating a permanent virtual path link to form the desired connection. As ATM networks grow in size, configuration management must implement an intelligent approach for creating, re-configuring, and destroying permanent virtual circuits. This paper presents a mobile agent based connection management scheme for establishment and teardown of PVCs in an ATM network.
