The Army is undergoing a major realignment in accordance with the Joint Vision 2010/2020 transformation to establish an enterprise command that is the single authority to operate and manage the Army Enterprise Information Infrastructure (Infrastructure). However, there are a number of critical network management issues that the Army will have to overcome before attaining the full capabilities to manage the full spectrum of Army networks at the enterprise level. The Army network environment consists of an excessive number of heterogeneous applications, systems, and network architectures that are incompatible. There are a number of legacy systems and proprietary platforms. Most of the NM architectures in the Army are based on traditional centralized NM approaches such as the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Although SNMP is the most pervasive protocol, it lacks the scalability, reliability, flexibility and adaptability necessary to effectively support an enterprise network as large and complex as the Army. Attempting to scale these technologies to this magnitude can be extremely difficult and very costly. This thesis makes the argument that intelligent-agent-based technologies are a leading solution, among the other current technologies, to achieve the Army's enterprise network management goals.
