SNMP for the masses - beatnik
Friday, The Onion Room, 900, 40 mins

Target Audience: People with some general understanding what Networking is all about.

SNMP is generally used for network management and monitoring of large networks. Companies spend thousands of $currency on tools just to keep their network up and running. But SNMP can be used for other things as well. In this talk I will discuss how SNMP can be used by regular folks. I will demonstrate some general polling processes, as well as creating a general SNMP proxy, an HTTP tunnel over SNMP, writing your own MIBs, adding general OID handlers to Net-SNMP and using Net::SNMP for polling for perl variables.
