This paper presents Quo Vadis, an evolving framework for intelligent
traffic management in very large communication networks. Quo Vadis
is designed
to exploit topological properties of large networks as well as their
spatio-temporal dynamics to optimize multiple performance criteria
through cooperation
among nodes in the network. It employs a distributed representation
of network state information
using local load measurements
supplemented by a less precise global summary.
Routing decisions in Quo Vadis are based on parameterized
heuristics designed to optimize various performance
metrics in an anticipatory or pro-active as well as compensatory or reactive
mode and to minimize the overhead
associated with traffic management.  The results of simulation experiments
within a grid network clearly demonstrate the ability of
Quo Vadis to avoid congestion and minimize message delay
under a variety of network load conditions.
