I'm new to SNMP in general and to the WebNMS-SNMP-C-agent in particular.
I need to have a single Linux box that runs several SNMP-C agents, say managing/representing several NICs.
1. Should I execute each agent in a separate Linux process (which I believe is simpler, but could be very wrong...),
or should I create a thread for each NIC, all running in a managing process?
2. Is there a technical limitation to any of the choices, or just a personal preference?
3. If both are technically feasible, which is better (performance, system-resources use, etc.)?
Thank you in advance,
