Abstract

SNMP V.1 is the Internet network management protocol standard'. The protocol specifies two entities, namely the manager and the agent. The protocol allows four operations between the manager and the agent; GET, GET-NEXT, SET and TRAP One responsibility of the SNMP agent is to listen to the SNMP port (161) for requests from the manager. Upon receiving requests, it performs the operations (GET, GET-NEXT or SET) on the management information base (MIB) of the managed object accordingly.
