The use of software agents as Database Management System components lead to database systems that may be configured and extended to support new requirements. We focus here with the self-tuning feature, which demands a somewhat intelligent behavior that agents could add to traditional DBMS modules. We propose in this paper an agent-based database architecture to deal with automatic index creation. Implementation issues are also discussed, for a built-in agents and DBMS integration architecture.
