Overview

As the most effective set of automated tools for managing today's highly diverse, multivendor systems, SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), along with the RMON (Remote Network Monitoring) technology, is recognized as the de facto standard in the field of network management.

This book is the definitive guide to SNMP-based network and internetwork management for network administrators, managers, and designers. Concise, focusing on practical issues, and completely up to date, it covers SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and the most recent SNMPv3, as well as RMON1 and RMON2—all of which are currently deployed in today's LANs and WANs. With this book, you will be better equipped to determine your network management needs, gain insight into design issues, and obtain the necessary understanding to evaluate available SNMP-based products.

The author presents helpful background information, including an overview of network management requirements and an explanation of fundamentals such as network management architecture; performance, fault, and accounting monitoring; and configuration and security control.

You will also find detailed information on the specific protocols and operation of SNMPv1 and the enhancements made in SNMPv2 and SNMPv3, focusing in particular on this latest version's security features-message authentication code and encryption, USM (User-Based Security Model), and VACM (View-Based Access Control Model). The book provides an extensive discussion on standard MIBs (Management Information Bases), including MIB-II and the Ethernet Interface MIB. In addition, this third edition presents RMON1 and the RMON2 enhancements, looking at statistics collection, alarms, and filters.Throughout, the book highlights practical issues of network design, SNMP implementation, and daily operation.

To manage today's complex, multivendor network environments effectively and to plan intelligently for the future, you will need a thorough grasp of network management technology and standards. This comprehensive book will serve as your guide.
