The growth of multimedia applications on the Internet made at least one fifth of the total network traffic to run over UDP. Unlike TCP, UDP is unresponsive to network congestion. This may cause, inter alia, bandwidth starvation of responsive flows, severe and prolonged congestions or, in the worst-case scenario, a congestion collapse. Hence, the coexistence of both protocols on fair-share premises converges towards impossibility. The paper deals with a new approach to solving the problem of taming down the unresponsive flows. By using some of the desirable properties of mobile agents, the system is able to control the influx of non-TCP or unresponsive flows into the network. Various functions performed by mobile agents monitor non-TCP flows, calculate sending rates and modify their intensity according to the needs of the network to attain as good performance as it is possible.
