I am at a satisfactory point in the development, but I’m not 100% sure
that I’m conforming to accepted practices of developing these things.
We had a version of the CMU agent partially modified to work for bits
and pieces of our application. I’m currently extending that.
I added my own OIDs and such to the “mib.txt” that was on our system
(I’m assuming that it came with QNX and was not “homegrown”), and it
recognizes them for set and get responses.
So essentially, I’m extending the CMU agent to work under QNX as well
as to work for the variables that I’m adding… I’m using the
standard(?) QNX manager utilities to test my agent.
Thanks for the link. According to those tools, they’ll generate ansi
C from your MIB file, so compiling it under QNX should be no problem.
I’ll certainly help you if I can, but I’m no expert in this area…
Best of luck.

I have exactly the same situation, and is just starting my work.
How far have you gotten?
I have found a good SNMP toolbox that give a complete SNMP agent for various
platforms from a MIB-file.
It’s at: > http://www.adventnet.com/products/cagent/index.html
But I need to know how to set it in the QNX platform…

My question is, how do I incorporate the application variables that I
want to monitor into SNMP? Does 4.25 have support for subagents or SMUX
peers? If so, can you point me to the documentation (I haven’t found
If I have to develop a whole new agent, does it run in place of the QNX
agent, or in parallel with the QNX agent? IOW, am I forced to disable
the QNX agent if I have to run my own? Or is there a way to tell the
QNX default agent about the info that I want to be able to monitor
(which would be a peer/subagent)?
If they both run together, how would each agent know which requests were
for them - separate ports?
I’m new to SNMP - thx for your patience. >
Thanks for your time.
