In this paper we present a Distributed Intelligent Fault Management (DIFM) system for communication networks. The overall architecture of the proposed system is based on a distributed, cooperative, multi-agent paradigm, with probabilistic networks as the framework for knowledge representation and evidence inferencing. We adopt the management by delegation paradigm for network monitoring and integrate both hard and soft faults.
