Building SNMP Agents
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is by far, the dominant protocol in Network Management. This Protocol (SNMP) was designed to meet network management needs with ease.
Steps to Build SNMP Agents
Following are the steps to build Standalone SNMP Agents using the WebNMS Agent Toolkit.
Create a new project using MIB Compiler.
Load a MIB as input to the agent.
Generate and compile the code for the standalone SNMP agent using MIB Compiler.
Start the agent using MIB Compiler.
Test the SNMP agent using MIB Browser.
Additionally, the guide provides complete reference to the features of SNMP Agent and its implementations. WebNMS Agent Toolkit helps to provide both Standalone SNMP Agent and Multi-Protocol agent that supports SNMP. To build Multi-Protocol agent using SNMP Adaptor, refer to Building Multi-Protocol Agent with SNMP Support - SNMP Adaptor section. The FAQ explains all queries regarding SNMP Agent and its features. The Troubleshooting manual assists the users to resolve their issues, when they encounter any error or problem while working with the tool. The Tutorial section demonstrates complete implementation of the SNMP agent with other applications. Migration Guide helps to know more about migrating from 4.2 to 5.0/5.1.0 and 5.1.0 to 6.0.0.
