We've designed and implemented a new SNMP polling algorithm that helps to greatly decrease device synchronization time.
When adding an SNMP device account, this algorithm quickly detects MIBs the device supports and allows operator to select ones to be monitored. After that, only OIDs defined in the selected MIBs will be polled.
However, if you want to obtain all SNMP variables provided by device, you always fall back to original SNMP walk method.
Have been working on AggreGate Network Manager for several months, we've made a lot of modifications and improvements along with totally new features --- many big, important, and really interesting ones. Should we say we have a new AggreGate Network Manager now? Looks like that.
Anyway we are currently (re-)documenting AggreGate Network Manager… and an idea emerged: why not to post some of its fresh and hot snippets here? We don’t see any impediments so far! And so here we go… starting with the Network Manager overview.
