An Introduction to AS/400 SNMP Support

This redbook will help anyone who needs to understand the SNMP support
provided by the AS/400. As an aid to those new to SNMP, the book
gives an overview of SNMP, the type of information made available via
SNMP and the level of management made possible through the AS/400 SNMP
agent. The book includes information on the configuration of the
AS/400 SNMP support and provides examples of the use of an SNMP
manager to retrieve SNMP management information from the AS/400. In
showing this, the book not only shows how this can be done but also
provides examples of the type of information made available to an SNMP
manager when querying an AS/400 SNMP MIB. Those familiar with SNMP
will find information included on the standard, IBM enterprise and
Novell enterprise MIBs supported by the AS/400 SNMP agent.

Of special value is the information included on how the SNMP set
function can be used to manage AS/400 communications objects, for
example, how set can be used to re-activate a failed line description.

Where applicable, the book compares SNMP based management with the
equivalent native AS/400 function. For example, it compares the use
of SNMP to display IPX routing information with an AS/400 command that
can gather the same information.

The book also includes information on the SNMP manager and subagent
APIs included in OS/400, how these can be used by third-party
applications and how, in the case of the manager APIs, they are used
by IBM-supplied OS/400 applications.

The book is valid for OS/400 releases V4R1, V3R7, V3R6, V3R2 and V3R1. It should be noted that there were no SNMP enhancements in V4R1.

Some knowledge of TCP/IP is assumed.
