Network Management with SNMP

Concepts, Processes, Functions

An efficient administration of LANs, routers, and other network components is not possible without powerful management tools. With the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), a de-facto standard has been able to establish itself for management communication in heterogeneous networks. The SNMP-capability of the corresponding network products is no longer being explicitly asked for by the user today. Rather, it is taken to be a standard feature. The aim of the course is to impart a well-based and directly applicable know-how on network management with SNMP. The knowledge acquired is necessary for the evaluation and selection of specific network management systems.
