RE: the future of SNMP


From my view, it looks like more and more people are looking at other ways
to get management data other than snmp, just because getting back a table
with lot of entries is very slow. With the enhancements that  EOS proposes
this problem could be solved and would encourage more people to stay with
and to use snmp.
