A management agent is a logical object that contains the information necessary to represent, configure, or manage some functionality provided by a device or software feature. IP Availability Manager supports connectivity analysis of the following management agent object types:

  • SNMPAgent — An agent that manages and monitors network systems and their functions. It implements one or more MIBs and provides access to MIB data for management applications. An SNMPAgent typically listens on UDP port 161.

  • VRAgent — An agent that manages and monitors virtual routers and their functions and interfaces.
