Product Summary - EMANATE

EMANATE® is a run-time extensible SNMP agent. The EMANATE system includes the world's leading subagent development kit, which automates subagent development. Based on a Master Agent/Subagent architecture, EMANATE allows subagents to be loaded and unloaded dynamically at run time.

Product Description
The EMANATE (Enhanced MANagement Agent Through Extensions) Run-time Extensible Agent System was developed by SNMP Research, Inc. under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey D. Case. The EMANATE Agent System consists of a Master Agent, zero to many Subagents and a Subagent Development Kit. Together these components allow for SNMP management of systems, devices, and applications (sometimes referred to as managed nodes), and the easy development and integration of additional subagents as management needs increase. EMANATE provides a System Independent Application API that efficiently coordinates SNMP communication between the Master Agent and the Subagents. This allows EMANATE to port easily across multiple platforms. The EMANATE agent supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, and SNMPv3. This trilingual support offers the familiarity of industry standard SNMPv1, and the security features of authorization and privacy provided by SNMPv3.

EMANATE provides the following advantages:
Extensibility: Subagents can connect and disconnect to the Master Agent at will. When this happens, their MIBs are added and removed dynamically from the Master Agent. Asynchronous Message Handling: The Master need not wait for a response from a Subagent before attending to other incoming SNMP messages. Master/Subagent Independence: No restrictions are placed on the order in which the Master Agent and Subagents may be started. System Independent API: An easy-to-use System Independent Application Programming Interface (API) is provided for developers to use when implementing their MIB in an EMANATE Subagent. This System Independent API hides the details of the particular system on which the Subagent is being developed and permits much Subagent code reuse across different architectures. In addition, the API provides a clear interface to the system dependent portion of the Subagent code. Multiple Platform Support: EMANATE is designed to be highly portable and is currently supported on over 30 different systems.

Product Summary - EMANATE/Lite

EMANATE®/Lite is a monolithic SNMP agent, which includes an easy-to-use development toolkit for adding MIB extensions to the agent at compile time. The software provides the core SNMP protocol engine that should be installed within each SNMP managed element or device. It receives and responds to SNMP queries and commands issued from SNMP management stations. EMANATE/Lite provides access to management information for each of the managed protocol layers within the network element. And because it is provided with source code, new MIB variables can be added to the agent, as well as compiling and linking the new extensions to the MIB already supported by the agent. EMANATE/Lite is ideally suited for use in embedded systems.

Product Description
EMANATE®/Lite is a monolithic SNMP agent, which includes a powerful development toolkit for adding MIB extensions to the agent at compile time. EMANATE/Lite is ideally suited for use in embedded systems because it provides full SNMP support with a minimal footprint. Overview
EMANATE/Lite is the "traditional" monolithic compile-time extensible SNMP agent. This simply means that in order to add new MIB variables to the agent, it is necessary to have access to the source code, and to compile and link in the new extensions to the MIB already supported by the agent. EMANATE/Lite software provides the core SNMP protocol engine that should be installed within each SNMP managed element or device. It receives and responds to SNMP queries and commands issued from SNMP management stations. EMANATE/Lite provides access to management information for each of the managed protocol layers within the network element. EMANATE/Lite from SNMP Research can be compiled to support SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, and SNMPv3. This trilingual option preserves the investment in current management technology while providing a smooth transition to SNMPv3-based management.
