6.2.2 DMI Mapper

The DMI mapper handles requests from and responses to the SNMP Master Agent in the system. When it receives a request, such as an SNMP Get request for a specific MIB variable, the mapper translates the MIB variable into a corresponding DMI MIF attribute. Indications sent by DMI components in the system are then converted to SNMP traps and sent to the management application. Translation of MIB variables into MIF attributes and indications into traps are performed only for those components that the mapper has registered with the SNMP Master Agent.
