Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an application-layer protocol that’s used to collect, organize, and exchange information about managed devices. In short, it is a software that allows different devices on a network to share information with one another.
Why Should I Use SNMP for NETCONF/YANG access to legacy SNMP MIBs?
SNMP is the perfect way to standardize your device monitoring. With the data our SNMP configuration tool collects, you can effectively monitor the activity of the managed devices on your network.
YumaPro SDK also allows you to incrementally access your network using low risk and low overhead automation. This, in turn, lets you access your legacy SNMP Management Information Base (MIBs) to YANG modules, a more refined data modeling language that is more resilient to configuration change.
SNMP coexists with YANG in YumaPro’s netconfd-pro server, allowing you to transition at your own pace with minimal network failures.
YumaPro SDK’s SNMP features include:
- Automated conversion of SMIv2 modules to YANG modules using RFC 6643
- YumaPro tools to automate the development of YANG modules
- SNMP packet processing by integrating Net-SNMP into the netconfd-pro server
- SNMP GET request processing
- SNMP GETNEXT request processing
- SNMP GETBULK request processing
- Asynchronous Notifications — traps and informs
- Support for SNMPv2c and SNMPv3
