Network Management Protocol: Creating Applications to Improve Network System

IT industry is a continuous process of enhancing network systems, improving
communications and advancing the operating procedures of businesses. With the help of
these advanced applications and software, networking systems can be enhanced.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is one of the network management
requirements that was developed by Internet Engineering Task Force or IETF. This is a
subsidiary group of Internet Activities Board or IAB.

This is created to have a standard management in all LAN- based internet products like
routers, wiring the concentrators and bridge. This technology is created to decrease the
problems of network management and reduce the needed resources to be able to sustain
it. The Simple Network Management Protocol can give a tough, centralized networking
management for the company and provide a flexible system.

The Simple Network Management Protocol identifies how the management data is being
exchanged among management agents and other network management applications. This
system has numerous versions. The SNMPv1 [SNMPv1 Specs] and SNMPv2 [SNMPv2
Specs] are just some of the most popular versions of Simple Network Protocol. The
SNMP v1 network management architecture consists of workstation that facilitates the
application in network management.

This version has polls management agents that control data to agents. It also has a
Management information Base or MIB that identifies the data that can be gathered and
handled by the management systems. Aside from that, the SNMPv1 contains
management agents that gives information provided by the MIB passed to the
management applications and can control information.
