Analysis and development of an application for screening a MIB structure using SNMP

Bachelor thesis, offered

University: MU, Faculty: FI, Topic: Other

The aim of the thesis is to develop an application (in either C#, python or Java) with GUI.

There exist different types of multi-functional devices (MFDs) from different vendors and each device can theoretically use a different approach to account printing, scanning and copying done by a MFD user. Y Soft employees create accounting drivers for each type of a MFD. The developed application will assist Y Soft employees in this task.

MFDs use MIB (Management Information Base, [1]) to store accounting information inside. This information can be accessed using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP, [2]). The student will develop the application that will:
  • Run a series of test case scenarios. Test case scenarios will be provided by a consultant of the thesis.
  • Collect and store output received from a MFD in a database.
  • Compare the output from a given type of a MFD with outputs from other types of MFDs stored in the database and determine the most similar one.

During the thesis the student will get familiar with MFD technologies, its accounting tracking mechanism and statuses detection to be used for precise accounting used within YSoft SafeQ products.
