Remote monitoring and control of agent/network behavior is achieved through RMI. RMI's unique capabilities to load and execute user-defined tasks at runtime, helps in test case automation of manager applications. For example, the automated test environment can change the value of a given OID on a given SNMP agent to simulate different responses that is required for the test cases, trigger traps at any time, etc.

The RMI interface allows you to programmatically do all the things that can be done using SNMP and TL1 Jython scripts to configure behavior. Refer the following links to learn about the different scenarios that can be setup via RMI.
