9 Manager Implementation Example

This Implementation Example section describes how a simple manager can be implemented with the SNMP Development Toolkit.

The example shown, ex2, can be found in the toolkit distribution.

This example has two functions:

  • A simple example of how to use the manager component of the SNMP Development Toolkit.

  • A simple example of how to write agent test cases, using the new manager.

9.1  The example manager

The example manager, snmp_ex2_manager, is a simple example of how to implement an snmp manager using the manager component of the SNMP Development Toolkit.

The module exports the following functions:

  • start_link/0, start_link/1

  • stop/0

  • agent/2, agent/3

  • sync_get/2, sync_get/3

  • sync_get_next/2, sync_get_next/3

  • sync_get_bulk/4, sync_get_bulk/5

  • sync_set/2, sync_set/3

  • oid_to_name/1

This module is also used by the test module described in the next section.

9.2  A simple standard test

This simple standard test, snmp_ex2_simple_standard_test, a module which, using the snmp_ex2_manager described in the previous section, implements a simple agent test utility.
