Abstract

We describe a drop-in replacement for net-snmp, known as 'Splash' (SNMP Plus a Lightweight API for SNAP Handling), which adds support for efficient mobile agents to the standard SNMP agent. Experiments show that the SNAP (Safe and Nimble Active Packets) mobile agent engine is comparable in speed to SNMP, even for the simple polling scenarios for which SNMP is optimized, yet also provides flexibility that allows it to outperform SNMP in more complex scenarios. Splash allows network operators to select the monitoring paradigm (polling with SNMP, or a mobile agent approach) most appropriate for a given situation.
