Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide

A.1.1 SNMP Operation in the Messaging Server

The Messaging Server SNMP process is an SNMP subagent which, upon startup, registers itself with the platform’s native SNMP master agent. SNMP requests from clients go to the master agent. The master agent then forwards any requests destined for the Messaging Server to the Messaging Server subagent process. The Messaging Server subagent process then processes the request and relays the response back to the client via the master agent. This process is shown in Figure A–1.
