Network Management - SNMP: Craig Partridge

Mirjam Kühne — 06 Dec 2019
The Simple Network Management Protocol, or SNMP, was originally specified in RFC1067, and most recently in RFC1157. The original intent was to make "all IP and TCP implementations be network manageable"—an early form of providing a machine-readable interface so operators could "automate all the things." Craig Partridge played a key role in the early development and standardisation of SNMP; he joins us on the History of Networking to discuss the origins and challenges involved in developing SNMP.
