WebNMS Framework is a modular, three-tier, protocol-neutral framework
written in Java that serves as a foundation for building full-fledged,
feature filled web-based network and element management systems.
It consists of a Server component and a Client component. The Java-based
server runs as an application and connects to SNMP and other data
sources of the back end, hooks on to any JDBC-compliant database
for data storage, and connects these resources to web-based clients.
The clients are Java applets running in web browsers as well as
in HTML pages.
The WebNMS Framework performs auto discovery of network resources,
trap reception and event logging, alerts, event correlation, SNMP
MIB loading and browsing, data collection, and reports. It comes
integrated with a web-server for connecting to browser-based clients.
The WebNMS Framework provides APIs for accessing the network database,
events and alerts, maps, and reports. These APIs enable developers
to build network management solutions.
