SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

Hi,
   SNMP Indication Handler is supported in Pegasus for quite a long time. Does Pegasus also support some kind of SNMP adapter which will support SNMP get and set operations, which will take SNMP requests and converts it to CIM calls and vice-versa?
 
 

Thanks and regards,

Souvik Roy

Re: SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

Do you really need any sort of converter, when all you are doing is getting and setting properties?
How is SNMP get and set any different than the way CIM has always gotten and set properties?
Events are different because there is more functionality involved.
But get and set seem to simple to me.

RE: SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

If anybody already have a SNMP Manager and Pegasus supports this kind of adapter, with minimal effort, device management can be supported through SNMP. Otherwise SNMP manager need to have an adapter which will be a CIM Client. In this case, don't you think  first option will give reusability and interoperability.

Re: SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

I guess it depends upon which direction one is going and what is available.

I think of CIM as the newer, easier, and more flexible way to manage remote resources, and SNMP as the older, more limited, but already existing means of remote resource management.
So I would assume the existing SNMP device access would be wrapped inside a CIM provider, that was device dependent.
Then generic CIM clients would then access this provider in standard ways.

If you have an SNMP client, then it would seem you would just use the existing SNMP device access.
It would not seem logical to try to use the older SNMP client to acce ss newer CIM providers.
SNMP can't support all that CIM can provide, so I don't see how or why one would want SNMP as the client/manager, over CIM device providers.
It would eliminate too much.
But I can see that allowing SNMP client/managers CIM access would be best done at the Pegasus level, if at all.

The opposite makes more sense to me, where the CIM client accesses SNMP devices through a CIM provider wrapper.
CIM can easily carry all that SNMP can provide.
But it would not be a generic solution.
Each CIM provider wrapper for a SNMP device would be specifically device dependent, and not effect Pegasus.

RE: SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

Kirk,

 

            The issue is creating management software for a new device. For a new device you want a new full featured CIM provider.

Now you are left with the requirement to support old SNMP based clients. Pegasus helps with the SNMP trap support. The job

would be complete with a generic SNMP get/set adapter that mapped CIM (provider) properties to SNMP.

Re: SNMP Adapter for OpenPegasus

I agree that a generic SNMP client interface could be fairly easily built into Pegasus.
But the http client interface to Pegaus is so much easier and richer then SNMP, it is not clear it is a such good idea.
Things like security, method calls, parameters, etc., would all be lost.
I fear it would only delay the transition away from SNMP even longer.
