A. B. C. D. E. F.


The SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) framework is used for managing and monitoring network devices, such as routers, switches, and servers. The framework comprises the following three components:

  1. Management Information Base (MIB) - A database of objects that define the management information available for a network device. These objects can be queried and manipulated by SNMP managers to monitor and configure the device.

  2. Agent - The software module that runs on the network device and provides access to the MIB. The agent responds to SNMP requests from managers and can send notifications to them when certain events occur.

  3. Manager - The software module that runs on a network management system (NMS) and interacts with the agents on network devices. The manager sends SNMP requests to agents to query and configure their MIBs, and receives notifications from agents when certain events occur.

Option C. "supervisor" and Option F. "AES" are not components of the SNMP framework. AES is a cryptographic algorithm used to secure SNMP communications, but it is not a component of the framework itself. "Supervisor" is not a term used in the context of SNMP.

Therefore, the correct options are:

A. MIB D. agent B. manager
