The DynamicSNMP® SNMP Agent SDK provides a set of generic high-level Java APIs which greatly simplify the development of platform-independent Java SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 agent software for use in:

  • network device agents
  • SNMP north bound interfaces (NBIs)
  • element management systems (EMS)
  • network management systems (NMS)
  • network application monitors
  • application management interfaces
  • fault management consolidators
  • network management probes
  • protocol mediators (TL1 to SNMP, etc)
  • SNMP network/agent simulators
  • and many more ...

With a wide range of API configuration options for everything from developing a simple SNMP application management plug-in to a full-scale telecommunications equipment agent, the SNMP Agent SDK has the components you need to do the job right.

Key Features

The DynamicSNMP® SNMP Agent SDK is built on top of the core DynamicSNMP® metadata interface and messaging engine.The metadata interface includes the following features:

  • command line MIB compiler and metadata generator:
    - SNMP metadata built from standard SNMP MIB files
    - converts SNMP MIB to XML format
    - converts SNMP MIB to user-friendly HTML files (see example)
    - automatic module resolution for standard SNMP MIB modules

  • metadata API provides runtime access to SNMP MIB definitions
  • automatic label to OID lookup
  • automatic OID to label reverse lookup
  • metadata loaded from XML MIB file output of metadata generator
  • supports dynamic, runtime SNMP MIB generation from Java classes

and the messaging engine supports:

  • high performance BER encoding and decoding of SNMP PDUs
  • optimized for minimal memory/object usage
  • intelligent BER buffer caching/reuse
  • encode once paradigm for mulitple target messages

In addition to the features of the core APIs, the key features of the SNMP Agent SDK are:

  • 100% Java, works with Java 2 SDK version 1.2 or greater
  • strongly-typed APIs (for understandability)
  • high performance OID tree implementation
  • SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 support
  • SNMPv2-MIB support
  • built-in RowStatus support
  • SNMP MIB value initialization from XML
  • configurable access control
  • table and leaf node processor support
  • Java bean adaptor (Attach your Java objects to the agent)
  • automatic generation of SNMP MIBs from java classes
  • simplified notification support (uses OBJECTS clause to populate traps)
  • default support for SNMP Get,Set,GetNext, and GetBulk requests
  • generic, extensible variable and message processors
  • default SCALAR and TABLE variable implementations
  • configurable support for multiple simultaneous network interfaces
  • built-in support for the following transport protocols:
    - SNMP over UDP
    - SNMP over TCP
    - SNMP over Serial Port

  • built-in support for the following authentication specifications:
    - MD5
    - SHA

  • built-in support for the following privacy specifications:
    - DES
    - 3DES (Triple DES)
    - AES128
    - AES192
    - AES256

  • built-in support for the following user/key management standards
    - USM
    - USM with Diffie-Helman Key Change and Key Ignition

  • built-in instrumentation for the following MIBs:
    - SNMPv2-MIB

  • supports 'on-the-fly' MIB definition generation
