Changes Made from Release 5.0 to 5.1

 

The Release 5.1 of AdventNet Agent Toolkit C Edition supports development of Standalone TL1 agent and Multi-Protocol TL1 agent with common instrumentation. Security for TL1 Agent is also available in this release. For creating the TL1 command set files, the Toolkit provides the TL1 Message Builder tool which now has complete modifier2 support. For testing the developed TL1 agent, the Toolkit provides a new manager-side tool, TL1CraftInterface.

 

The following section lists the new features and modifications done in each of the following modules and tools:

No changes have been made in the HTTP and Multi-protocol Agents.

Changes from the Release 4.0 to 4.1

 

In our previous releases, the C agent or embedded agent was a part of AgentTookit. With release 4.1, the embedded agent is a separate product and is released as AdventNet Agent Toolkit C Edition. The run-time agent is now called 'C' agent instead of embedded agent.

 

This section lists the new features and modifications we have done in each module, such as Run-time agent, Mib Editor, Agent Compiler, Mib Browser, etc.

 

Run-time Agent

 

Agent Toolkit release 4.0 supports SNMP and HTTP interface for run-time agent. Some of the changes in SNMP Agent features and new features supported by HTTP Agent are listed out here.

SNMP Agent

        • API is changed to support new agent architecture.

        • Atomic set implementation between master agent and sub-agent

        • GET-BULK implementation between master agent and sub-agent.

        • Supports to provide Database access to tables for both SNMP tables.

        • Supports to generate code for v1/v2 to v3 Trap Conversion in Master agent.

        • MIB Tree implementation and traversing are optimized.

        • SNMP Agent can support any protocol, for example TCP. By default, it supports UDP.

Features Supported in Patch Release 1.0

        • SNMP Table Row-level proxy is supported.

        • Proxy based on context name is supported for multiple instances of the same MIB.

        • The method FreeAllResources() is generated for each MIB in <AdventNet>/C-Agent/projects/<ProjectName>/agent/stubs/listenerifc.c file. This method will free all the agent resources and the resources allocated for the MIBs to which the code is generated.

HTTP Agent

        • Supports to provide HTTP 1.0 protocol access to the run-time agent.

        • Dynamic HTML page generation is supported using Server Side Includes (SSI) tags.

        • Provides a static HTML page with SSI tags, which is helpful to the user to customize the information.

Mib Compiler

Features Supported in Patch Release 1.0


 

Changes from the Release 3.2.1 to 4.0

 

API Changes

 

The MIBs package uses new MibParser which gives better performance. The following are the changes in MIB-related operations due to new MibParser:

newNode OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { ModuleName.nodeName 1}

newNode OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { 1 3 6 .......}

newNode OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { 1 }

Three new methods will be generated for handler file in the code generation for embedded agent. They are

Support for SNMPv3 USM and VACM remote configuration. That is, RFC2574(USM-MIB) and RFC2575(VACM-MIB) are implemented.
