I n this paper we propose a mobile agent based QoS management system to saris& the jvefitncrional principles of QoS architecture, i.e., integration, separation, transparency, asynchronous resource nianagenient andpetjorniance. Mobile agent paradigm is a unique paradigm in contrast lo traditional client/server paradigm in a problem inherently distributed and coniplex. such as QoS management. This paradigm saves considerable amount of bandwidth and reduces network traffic. We present un

Response time of the niobile agent is conrpirted with different nuniber of retransnzissions and the intermediate "hops" for both the models. It is observed that the response tinre of the ugent increases with increase in n~iniber of retransniissions and the hops. We have also showed that the increase in the urrival of niobile agents would affect the odniission oj new rnultiniedrri applicutions. keywords: mobile agent, QoS, bandwidth, nutlriniedia comnucn ica tion.
