EMANATE/Lite Product Details

EMANATE®/Lite is a monolithic SNMP agent, which includes a powerful development toolkit for adding MIB extensions to the agent at compile time. EMANATE/Lite is ideally suited for use in embedded systems because it provides full SNMP support with a minimal footprint.


EMANATE/Lite is the "traditional" monolithic compile-time extensible SNMP agent. This simply means that in order to add new MIB variables to the agent, it is necessary to have access to the source code, and to compile and link in the new extensions to the MIB already supported by the agent.

EMANATE/Lite software provides the core SNMP protocol engine that should be installed within each SNMP managed element or device. It receives and responds to SNMP queries and commands issued from SNMP management stations. EMANATE/Lite provides access to management information for each of the managed protocol layers within the network element.

EMANATE/Lite from SNMP Research can be compiled to support SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, and SNMPv3. This trilingual option preserves the investment in current management technology while providing a smooth transition to SNMPv3-based management.
