CA PAM supports SNMP versions 2c and 3. This document will show how to configure CA PAM to use both, and will demonstrate how it works with a simple network management program called ireasoning, and from the unix or Windows command line.
Simple Network Management Protocol is an internet standard protocol used to manage network devices. The device vendor defines the data available for the device in a file called a Management Information Base(MIB). The MIB describes the data that is available by polling the device and the data that is communicated out from the device via alerts(traps).
