Network resources monitoring and management is critical to ensure security and load balance of network and information system, especially in the increasingly extensively used cloud computing and distributed parallel architecture. This paper presents a distributed network resources monitoring solution based on multi-agent and matrix grammar. A distributed multi-agent architecture for network resources monitoring is described. The paper proposes a generic matrix grammar which uses WMI, CIM and SNMP to remotely collect and manage data from network components. The matrix grammar provides a generic mechanism to describe what to be monitored, how to collect and process data. A monitoring automation engine consisting of a matrix analyzer and a recipe processor is described. The proposed solution has good extensibility, scalability, and enables monitoring automation and software reusability.
