bit confused about your suggestion. Maybe you can reword so I can understand
don't really deliver notifications. Messages deliver PDUs. PDUs may contain
you asking that each message be identified? That information is already
available by checking the source address in the UDP packet. The message header
includes a request ID, so duplicates can be detected. Snmpv3 supplements
this with the contextEngineID to identify the engine that sourced the
misunderstanding your question?
Following the work in Disman has highlighted a
number of difficulties with the basic technology of SNMP but as has been
pointed out to me, most of those are Mib-related,not
But one that I see as SNMP (sensu stricto) and hence a
possibility for this group, is the difficulty of identifying a PDU (as opposed
to identifying a MIB object at which SNMP is very good). Sometimes it
matters to know where information came from eg which PDU delivered the
Notification so as to track/correlate/eliminate duplicates etc.
As defined, SNMP does not seem to have any
reliable way of doing so; any ideas?
