Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) provides a "simple" set of operations that allows you to more easily monitor and manage network devices like routers, switches, servers, printers, and more. The information you can monitor with SNMP is wide-ranging--from standard items, like the amount of traffic flowing into an interface, to far more esoteric items, like the air temperature inside a router. In spite of its name, though, SNMP is not especially simple to learn. O'Reilly has answered the call for help with a practical introduction that shows how to install, configure, and manage SNMP. Written for network and system administrators, the book introduces the basics of SNMP and then offers a technical background on how to use it effectively. Essential SNMP explores both commercial and open source packages, and elements like OIDs, MIBs, community strings, and traps are covered in depth. The book contains five new chapters and various updates throughout. Other new topics include: * Expanded coverage of SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3 * Expanded coverage of SNMPc * The concepts behind network management and change management * RRDTool and Cricket * The use of scripts for a variety of tasks * How Java can be used to create SNMP applications * Net-SNMP's Perl module The bulk of the book is devoted to discussing, with real examples, how to use SNMP for system and network administration tasks. Administrators will come away with ideas for writing scripts to help them manage their networks, create managed objects, and extend the operation of SNMP agents. Once demystified, SNMP is much more accessible. If you're looking for a way to more easily manage your network, look no further than Essential SNMP, 2nd Edition.

He shares a home with his significant other, Callie, their loving cats, Chester and Twiggy, two Peruvian guinea pigs, two Litoria species White's tree frogs, and several poison dart frogs. Originally from Pensacola, Florida, Kevin spent several years studying computer science at the University of West Florida. In late 1996 he was recruited by MindSpring Enterprises (now known as Earthlink, Inc.), a national ISP based in Atlanta, and subsequently left school to pursue his career. He spent four years in network management and was the senior network management architect for Earthlink. He left Earthlink to work at Netrail, a tier-1 Internet backbone provider. While at Netrail, Kevin was in charge of the company's network management architecture. These days Kevin works as a software engineer for Guarded.Net, a network security start-up in Atlanta. Kevin's first computer was a Commodore 64. He began running Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs) at age 11 and later became interested in computer networking in general. His other computing interests include Linux, MySQL, and programming in C, Java, Perl, and PHP. Kevin will soon have his private pilot's license and plans to become instrument and multiengine rated soon thereafter. He recently discovered the LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS' Robotics Invention System, where he uses Dave Baum's Not Quite C (NQC) for Linux to control his robotic creations.
