I am involved in a SNMP programming project using C++. I am familiar with
the SNMP and MIB concepts, but some aspects of the coding are not clear to
me yet. Can anyone please, answer the following questions or point me to
some online resources?
1-What is the role of MIB in the development of SNMP application (coding) ?
2-Should we use MIB for code generation?
3-Can we code without MIB?
4-What is the role of MIB while the SNMP agents and SNMP mangers are
running? are they required?
Thank you very much.

... Floating points is really a problem with SNMP and resulted in having quite a number of strings in the MIB where FP's would make much more sense. ... The one and only reason for this seems to be the UDP way of talking to ntpdc, it would not be very hard to expand the maximum number of client records beyond the magic 600, but the mode 7 UDP transmission of the monlist table is often not even capable of reliably providing these 600 entries, at least not under heavy network conditions. ... Second, as mentioned several times on the NTP hackers wire, we would very much like to shoot ntpdc and its fascist protocol. ...
