Utvärdering av prestanda för en nätverksinfrastruktur övervakad med SNMP polls och traps (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The result of this bachelor thesis is a comparison between three different network devices on how many resources that is used on them when utilizing SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c polls and traps. The devices tested are an old Cisco router, a modern Juniper gateway and a Linux server. The experiments conducted prove that SNMP does not utilize the network devices resources to a point that it becomes an issue for the performance. These tests are done to ensure that SNMP do not use up to many resources on the infrastructure which would decrease the functionality and performance of the network. This study shows whether or not SNMP monitoring is a problem for the enterprise network

Abstract [sv]

Resultatet utav detta kandidatexamensarbete är en jämförelse mellan tre olika nätverksenheter och hur mycket prestanda som utnyttjas när SNMPv1 och SNMPv2c poll och trap används på enheterna. Enheterna som testerna utförs på är en gammal Cisco router, en modern Juniper gateway och en Linux server. Testerna visar att SNMP inte använder såpass mycket utav enheternas resurser att det påverkar prestandan på dessa enheter. Dessa tester görs för att försäkra oss om att SNMP inte tar upp så mycket prestanda på näverksenheterna att funktionaliteten och prestandan minskar. Detta kandidatexamensarbete visar huruvida SNMP övervakning är ett problem för nätverksenheter eller inte.
