2.9. SNMPv2 Management Communication

2.9. SNMPv2 Management Communication

A SNMPv2 management communication is a communication from one specified SNMPv2 party to a second specified SNMPv2 party about management information that is contained in a SNMPv2 context accessible by the appropriate SNMPv2 entity. In particular, a SNMPv2 management communication may be

  • a query by the originating party about information accessible to the addressed party (e.g., getRequest, getNextRequest, or getBulkRequest),

  • an indicative assertion to the addressed party about information accessible to the originating party (e.g., Response, InformRequest, or SNMPv2-Trap),

  • an imperative assertion by the originating party about information accessible to the addressed party (e.g., setRequest), or

  • a confirmation to the addressed party about information received by the originating party (e.g., a Response confirming an InformRequest).

A management communication is represented by an ASN.1 value with the following syntax:

        SnmpMgmtCom ::= [2] IMPLICIT SEQUENCE {
          dstParty
             OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
          srcParty
             OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
          context
             OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
          pdu
             PDUs
        }

For each SnmpMgmtCom value that represents a SNMPv2 management communication, the following statements are true:

  • Its dstParty component is called the destination and identifies the SNMPv2 party to which the communication is directed.

  • Its srcParty component is called the source and identifies the SNMPv2 party from which the communication is originated.

  • Its context component identifies the SNMPv2 context containing the management information referenced by the communication.

  • Its pdu component has the form and significance attributed to it in [2].
