NetSNMP: Bindings for net-snmp's C API for clients

[ bsd3, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

Network.Protocol.NetSNMP is a partial binding to the library portion of the net-snmp package. It uses the 'single-session api', which is claimed to be thread-safe. Not all operations are supported yet; please contact the maintainer if you're in need of expanded functionality, and especially if you would like to contribute.

Readme for NetSNMP-0.1.6

[back to package description]
The (Haskell) NetSNMP package is a binding for a subset of the libsnmp
api provided by the NetSNMP project.  It is initially being developed
against NetSNMP version 5.4.1, but probably works with most or all 5.*

Currently supported protocol versions:
  SNMPv1  -- original SNMP
  SNMPv2c -- v2 protocol with old community-based security

Not yet supported:
  SNMPv3  -- v2 protocol plus new v3 party-based security

Other versions are not supported by the underlying library, and are
unlikely to ever be supported by this package.
  SNMPsec -- first attempt to add strong security to SNMPv1
  SNMPv2p -- initial SNMPv2, with v2 party-based security
  SNMPv2u -- v2 protocol with user-based security
  SNMPv2* -- proprietary hybrid variant of v2c and v2p

This binding requires that net-snmp be built without
those options, since they may encourage better security, but I won't be able
to prioritize this in the forseeable future.
