Java SNMP now available in OpenDMK

Posted by emcmanus on October 4, 2007 at 5:14 AM PDT

The OpenDMK project now includes the SNMP API from Sun's Java DMK product. Kudos to Daniel Fuchs who put in the considerable work to make this happen!

This API includes the necessary interfaces to build both managers (clients) and agents (servers) that use SNMP. It also includes a tool called mibgen which takes an SNMP MIB (schema) and generates skeleton JMX MBeans. Implementing the MIB in an agent is then just a question of filling in the right behaviour in those MBeans. Daniel's blog has much more information about SNMP and about OpenDMK.

Some parts of this SNMP code are still encumbered so we're not yet able to release full source. We're working on that, but in the meantime the missing parts are supplied as a binary plug, in the manner of OpenJDK.

Hello, Eamonn.

We are trying to implement a SNMP support in our application and just started using OpenDMK.
Quite confused. What is a perspective of an OpenDMK project? We can download 01-Oct-2007_19-17-46 b02 but there have been no updates since then.
Contrary we see updates in oracle proprietary mbeans server and snmp packages. (DMK is not now publically available nor for download nor for evaluation, as far as I know)
Could you please suggest, is there any chance that OpenDMK will be supported and will evolve in a nearest future and we can base on it or we'd better consider some other snmp implementations.

Serge,

I am no longer involved with this work. I would suggest that you leave a comment on Daniel Fuchs's blog that I quoted above.
