    Abstract

    Computer network as a force drags its customers to share more and more resources while on the other hand managing such network recourses is a challenging job for an IT professional and perhaps becoming difficult humanly. In this paper, we have proposed an agent based system for activity monitoring on network (ABSAMN) for the monitoring of resources over a network, suitable for network of networks; commonly known as CAN (campus area network). Multi-agent system is a system composed of several agents, collectively capable of achieving goals that are difficult to achieve by an individual agent or monolithic system. We propose the use of multi-agent system to ensure proper system operation by watching for inconsistencies in user activities, node level activity, internet monitoring, and system configuration. The system is fully autonomous and once initialized with the given rules and domain knowledge ABSAMN manages resources on its own with the help of mobile agents. We have evaluated this architecture on the university campus having seven labs equipped with 20–300 number of PCs in various labs. Results were very promising and support the implementation of the solution.
