    supporting SNMP and  RMI Adaptor

    Palanisamy Gounder Newbie

      I was wondering about the best approach to follow when a MBean has to be accessed through the SNMP adaptor and RMI adaptor.

      Assume that "ProductA" has to be managed through SNMP and RMI. For SNMP I would define a MIB, compile and generate the skeleton code. Basically the MIB compiler generates bunch of MBeans.

      I was thinking that here create another Standard MBean and "feed" the SNMP skeleton by accessing the Standard MBean.

      Hope the question is clear.
      I was wondering about others opinion.

          yes, sounds like the approach JDMK SNMP adaptor takes.

          Although the additional MIB compile process can be a bit cumbersome (like EJB compile) so I think a more user friendly approach would be a runtime "compile" and skeleton generation.

          Plan on doing an SNMP Adaptor? In Open Source? :)

            Juha, Yes my question was with reference to the JDMK SNMP mibgen and SNMP adaptor.

            So you think this approach is okay but not elegant?

            Can you please explain me more on this?

            No, not planning to write an SNMP Adaptor. If I write one, defineitely I will make it an open source.
