We are looking at building SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) functionality into our application. Has anyone done anything like this before? Is it a plausible concept for a Mendix app? Basically we need to send an integer (Object ID) to an IP address (the device), receive a response, and do a calculation on that result to get the device's power usage. Any advice would be appreciated.
We successfully implemented SNMP functionality using the snmp4j open source java API. Very easy to use and to implement! The possibilities and functionality in combination with Mendix is basically unlimited!
