Network Management Protocol
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), issued in 1988, was designed to provide an easily implemented, low-overhead foundation for multivendor network management of routers, servers, workstations, and other network resources. The SNMP specification:
The original version of SNMP (now known as SNMPv1) rapidly became the most widely used vendor-independent network management scheme. However, as the protocol gained widespread use, its deficiencies became apparent. These include a lack of manager-to-manager communication, the inability to do bulk data transfer, and a lack of security. All of these deficiencies were addressed in SNMPv2, issued as a set of proposed Internet standards in 1993.
