Most inherently distributed systems require self diagnosis and on-line monitoring. This is especially true in the domains of power transmission and mobile communication. Much effort has been expended in developing on-site monitoring systems for distributed power transformers and mobile communication base stations. In this paper, a new approach has been employed to implement the autonomous self diagnosis and on-site monitoring using multi-agents on mobile communication base stations.
