    As the Internet continues to grow, it becomes more and more apparent that existing Internet management technologies need to be improved, extended or replaced in order to extend functionality and reduce development time and operational costs. Within the IETF, IRTF, and IAB, several new approaches are currently under discussion. Evolutionary approaches aim at improving currently used technologies, whereas revolutionary approaches try to replace existing management-specific technologies with standard distributed systems technologies. This article surveys the research and development work under way to develop future Internet management technologies.
