%X Virtually all existing networked system management
tools use a Manager/Agent paradigm. That is, distributed agents are
deployed on managed devices to collect local information and report
it back to some management unit. Even those that use standard
protocols such as SNMP fall into this model. Using standard protocol
has the advantage of interoperability among devices from different
vendors. However, it may not be able to provide customized
information that is of interest to satisfy specific management needs.
In this dissertation work, different approaches are used to
collect information regarding the devices attached to a Local Area
Network. An SNMP aware application is being developed that will
manage the discovery procedure and will be used as data collector.
