Solstice Enterprise Agents 1.0 User Guide

1.2.5 Mapper

The Enterprise Agent technology also allows you to integrate DMI 2.0 functionality. This is accomplished through the mapper, that acts as a subagent. The mapper receives requests from the Master Agent and converts them into appropriate DMI requests, that are then sent to the DMI Service Provider. When the mapper receives the response back from the DMI Service Provider, it converts this response into the SNMP response and forwards it to the Manager through the Master Agent.
