Simple Network Management Protocol

Abstract

In this chapter, you will learn how SNMP is used to manage devices on a TCP/IP network. We’ll explore the SNMP model with many servers (agents) and few clients (managers).

You will learn about MIBs and the SMI tree for designating management information. We also briefly discuss RMON (remote monitor) and private management information bases (MIBs). We’ll also look at how network management is changing as the Internet becomes larger and larger.
