WebNMS Agent Toolkit is a rapid prototyping and development tool used for building cross platform Java based SNMP Agents. Though, it is possible to develop SNMP, TL1 and Multi-Protocol Agents using the toolkit this tutorial has been organized to demonstrate the complete development process of implementing a SNMP management solution in Java. The architecture given below gives an overview of the SNMP Agent.
The Mib Editor creates a MIB.
Taking MIB as the input the MIB Compiler tool generates and compiles java code for that MIB.
The created Agent, is later tested using the MIB Browser test tool.
Please go through this tutorial to know how the Agent works.
