The scriptmib Java Package

Frank Strauß, S. Mertens, S. Brandenburg


The Simple Network Management Protocol communicates only very low level operations between agents and network managers. Thus, MIBs have to define managed objects on an accordingly low level, agents have to implement them on such a low level and management applications have to work on the managed objects on this level. This means that even quite regular operations like table row creation and deletion have to be conveyed in (often multiple) simple Get- and Set-requests. Operations with multiple inter-table relations and error conditions are even more complicated. If we look at the manager side, as a consequence the development of applications that work on managed objects via SNMP might become error prone and time consuming. The Java scriptmib package represents a prototype definition and implementation of a set of classes to the developers of Java management applications, that fulfills operations on Script MIB1 agents. These classes represent Script MIB contexts and table rows. Their constructors and methods provide a means to operate on these tables on higher levels. Hence, they intend to make the development of Script MIB management applications more feasible.
