18.104.22.168 Component Interface
The components communicate with the DMI through the CI. The components' subagents are created by end users to manage the respective components (devices/applications, etc.). The following functions are provided by the CI:
Registration - Components register with the DMI SP.
Sending Events - Component instrumentation sends an indication block to the SP for processing. The DMI mapper translates the DMI indication an SNMP trap.
Components respond to the DMI SP requests to Get and Set various attributes instrumented by the component subagent.
