ond the standards by explaining which of those 2000 items are important and how to make use of them in order to improve the efficiency of real networks. Each chapter is divided into three sections: a tutorial on a technology (e.g., wide-area networking), a discussion of the management instrumentation available that is associated with the technology, and real-world application programs which show how problems associated with the technology can be solved by monitoring and controlling the instrumentation. Describes the theory, technology, and algorithms used to manage real networks. Focuses on how to integrate SNMP technology and SNMP-based tools into all aspects of network management interface management, LAN management, WAN management, remote management, host management, and application management. For network managers, administrators, programmers, operators at LAN and WAN levels. This is the most practical
