Net-SNMP (Net Simple Network Management Protocol)
Net-SNMP is a set of command line tools and libraries for implementing the
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) on
Net-SNMP is available on SourceForge.net for Microsoft Windows as well as many Unix and Linux operating systems,
but functionality varies depending on the operating system.
The Net-SNMP project began in the late 1980s at Carnegie Mellon University and Hewlett-Packard
Corp. The project was loosely referred to as “CMU SNMP," and it ran on many popular proprietary
UNIX systems. Later, the University of California at Davis took over stewardship of the project,
renaming it UCD-SNMP. The name UCD-SNMP can still be spotted in some of the management
information bases (MIBs) that the
Net-SNMP agent supports.
