Trident Sign: How to Set Up SNMP4J Agent, Part 1

To enrich #SNMP v3 support, I am going to use snmp4j agent. But due to lack of documentation for me, a Java blind, I have to learn about it bit by bit.

Below is a summary of my steps,

  1. Download and install Java runtime from I install it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6.
  2. Configure JAVA_HOME like this ( and add C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin to PATH.
  3. Download snmp4j agent ZIP package from here ( I use 1.3.1 version.
  4. Unzip this package and copy all JARs from lib to dist\lib.
  5. Create a launch.bat in dist\lib and use the following content.
  6. Execute this batch file to launch the agent. To stop it, simply close the console window.

Batch file content is,

java -cp SNMP4J-agent.jar;SNMP4J.jar;log4j-1.2.9.jar org.snmp4j.agent.test.TestAgent

I will spend more time on this agent and post future findings later.
