TEC-NOT-058 - Overview of SNMP and using third party SNMP tools

There are a number of open standard network protocols that can be used to discover, manage, and debug networked-based Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI) systems. One such protocol is Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which is a standard IP network protocol that can be used to interrogate, query, and configure SNMP-enabled devices such as the NET/REC/XXX or SSR/CHS/XXX recorder, or the KAD/BCU/140 Ethernet controller. You can also carry out other tasks such as turning on recordings and setting Events via SNMP.

To describe how SNMP operates and how it can be used to interact with SNMP-enabled Curtiss-Wright devices, this paper is divided into the following sections:

  • “32.1 Overview of the SNMP” on page 1
  • “32.2 MIBs” on page 3
  • “32.3 SNMP and the MIB in action” on page 7
  • “32.4 SNMP software” on page 7
  • “32.5 Appendix - Curtiss-Wright SNMP support” on page 10
  • “32.6 Troubleshooting” on page 17
