Abstract

The management tasks which have been traditionally employed over traditional wired networks should also play a key role for ensuring the proper operation of the so-called , with certain particular characteristics which make their management quite a complex task. Amongst all the challenges which need to be coped with, there is one which outstands over the rest, being ensuring an autonomous operation, qualifying them as manageable/configurable/... networks. This paper analyzes, over a hierarchical/distributed management architecture, defined to be used over personal networks, the performance of a discovery mechanism by means of which agents are able to locate managers, and associate to them. A complete implementation of the whole architecture has been made in the framework of the simulator (based on SNMP), including the mechanisms and procedures required to handle the discovery and association between managers and agents.
