My goals for writing this book
I had several goals for writing "A Practical Guide to SNMPv3 and Network Management". First, I wanted to provide a reference for SNMP which would both allow someone to quickly learn SNMP and to understand the potential pitfalls in building SNMP-based applications. My own experience over the past 9 years has been building SNMP-based applications, and I wanted to include as much of my own experience as I could. The fact is not all SNMP agents behave as expected, and I wanted to outline the types of problems that can occur. I also wanted to provide a reference to the type of management information that can be useful in troubleshooting and understanding network problems. Finally, for SNMP, I wanted to provide a reference that would have aided me in developing network management applications.
I had several goals for SNMPv3. First, to allow SNMPv3 to be understood as quickly and easily as possible. A major goal for my coverage of SNMPv3, though, was to provide the logic necessary to configure SNMPv3 devices so that SNMPv3 devices can be used within a network. In my mind there are two factors that are going to determine whether SNMPv3 is going to be accepted: performance and ease of configuration. If devices with security (authentication and/or encryption) turned on perform poorly, SNMPv3 will not survive. If SNMPv3 devices end up being difficult to configure and management data can not be accessed because of this, then SNMPv3 will not be accepted. The vendors will determine how well SNMPv3 performs. I hope my book aids in making SNMPv3 configuration simpler.
A final goal for this book was to make RMON2 simple. RMON2 is probably one of the more important advances to occur in network monitoring over the past 10 years. With RMON2 a network manager can understand the protocol traffic occuring over an ethernet segment, including network and application conversations. This can allow a network manager to better understand the growth of the network, and to better optimize client-server network performance. My goal for the RMON2 section was not only to make RMON2 easy to understand but to provide the logic for useful RMON2 applications.
I hope this book is useful to both network managers and developers. I would be interested in any comments and questions, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.From the Back Cover:
Practical Guide to SNMPv3 and Network Management
Implement SNMPv3, the new network management standard -- hands-on!
To manage and secure today's information systems -- and prepare for tomorrow's -- you need to master SNMPv3, the latest industry-standard protocol for managing IP networks. With David Zeltserman's Practical Guide to SNMPv3 and Network Management, you will. Accessible and authoritative, this book combines just enough theory with extensive guidance for real-world SNMPv3 deployment. Coverage includes:
SNMPv3 and the related RMONv2 standard have a reputation for complexity, but this book cuts through the confusion, showing you the logic and simplicity beneath. Whether you're ready to deploy these technologies, or simply to understand them, you won't find a more valuable resource.
