PROPOSAL: Standard SNMP Agent Daemon?
I apologize in advance if this has been discussed previously, but it sure
would be nice to have a standard SNMP Agent included with an LSB-compliant
Having a standard extensible agent daemon would ensure that a hardware or
software vendor's SNMP subagents would be compatible with all Linux
distributions and other subagents.
I would prefer something like the UCD-SNMP agent for now
(http://ucd-snmp.ucdavis.edu/), with an eye toward specifying
AgentX-compliancy in the future (http://www.scguild.com/agentx/).
If there's any interest, I'll be glad to write this up for review and
possible inclusion in the LSB spec.
