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 [5] for network monitoring and integrate both hard and soft faults.
