Device management is an integral part of network management. As devices form key ingredients in the network, it is very essential that these devices must meet protocol standards in configuration and management. Network equipment vendors need to ensure that devices have detailed standards-based configuration and management capabilities.
Depending on the customer or market requirements, network equipment vendors have to equip their devices with SNMP, CLI agents. The requirement can be agents that run in an embedded system or in a Java-enabled device. Agents must be built on standards to ensure device management via WebNMS Framework or any leading Network / Enterprise Managament System. Building an agent requires domain level expertise on specific protocol with capital and time investments. These factors can drastically increase the time-to-market.
WebNMS Agent Toolkit C Edition offers productive agent development environment to build SNMP,TL1, CLI and multi-protocol agents with productive development tools. It offers a basic agent framework for the chosen protocol. By providing device-specific instrumentation agents are developed rapidly for an embedded system.
Agents built using WebNMS Agent Toolkit C Edition are supported on popular RTOS, such as WindRiver VxWorks, OSE Delta, QNX Neutrino, and Windows CE etc. Packed with tools such as MIB editor, TL1 Message Builder, Agent Compiler, TL1 Craft Interface, MIB browser, CLI Editor and CLI Browser etc., WebNMS Agent Toolkit offers a very developer friendly environment for agent development.
