Abstract(in English) In business communications networks consisting of many LANs and WANs, network management, which covers the entire network as a whole, is very difficult to achieve because the network has many intelligent elements and provides many services. A network management system is required to make the network more efficient. In this paper, we propose a knowledge-based fault management system for complicated business communications networks that contain both LANs and WANs. This system incorporates autonomic task agents which manage individual functions by utilizing artificial intelligence. Communication among the autonomic task agents is facilitated by a blackboard model. A trouble prediction function we incorporated into the management system is described, and a classification method for the knowledge-based structure and a composite reasoning method, both of which can speed up the response time of the fault management process, are presented and discussed. Experimental results obtained in the use of a system prototype to evaluate the effectiveness of the system are described and explained.
