About This Course
Have you ever wondered about the design process of or questioned seemingly odd choices in protocols that are the building blocks of the Internet as we know it? This MOOC module will give you a greater insight into origin of widely used network management protocols as used on the Internet.
This course discusses architectures, protocols and techniques to manage Internet systems. The architectures that are discussed range from the simplistic manager-agent model, to more advanced distributed management models. The discussion on protocols includes the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and the Network Configuration (NetConf) protocol. The operation of routers, switches and other Internet systems can be monitored and modified via so-called managed objects, which are organized within Management Information Bases (MIBs). This course gives an overview of the most important MIBs, as well as the syntax to define these MIBs (SMI).
