Web services gateways l.jpg

Web Services Gateways

  • Provide access to device information through Web Services

  • Two types:

    • Protocol-level

    • Object-level

Ricardo Neisse

Institute of Informatics, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil


Protocol level gateways l.jpg

Protocol Level Gateways

  • Map SNMP operations (Get, GetNext, Set) into Web Service calls

  • E.g.

    function Get ($ip, $community, $oid)

    function GetNext ($ip, $community, $oid)

    function Set ($ip, $community, $oid, $newvalue)

Ricardo Neisse

Institute of Informatics, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil


Object level gateways l.jpg

Object Level Gateways

  • Map each MIB object to a WS operation

  • E.g.

    function GetSysLocation ($ip, $community)

    function SetSysLocation ($ip, $community, $newvalue)

    function GetIfAdminStatus ($ip, $community, $index=-1)

    function SetIfAdminStatus ($ip, $community, $index, $newvalue)

Protocol x object level l.jpg

Protocol level:

Similar to SNMP

Manager is forced to know the MIB structure

New MIBs are supported without modifications in the gateway

Dynamic creation is not required to protocol level gateways

Object level:

Operations and bindings are described in WSDL

Changes in the MIB reflect in the gateway

Gateway dynamic creation

Protocol x Object Level

System for gateway dynamic creation l.jpg

System for Gateway Dynamic Creation

  • Implemented in PHP

  • Generates object level gateways and WSDL descriptions from SMI MIB definitions

  • Uses LIBSMI to parse SMI files and NuSOAP to support Web Services

Gateway dynamic creation l.jpg

Gateway Dynamic Creation

SNMP to Web Service Gateway:

require_once('nusoap.php');

$server = new soap_server();

...

$server->register('ifOutOctets');

function ifOutOctets($ip, $str_com, $index=-1){

if($ip=='' or $str_com=='') return new soap_fault(‘1','client',‘Invalid Parameters');

else {

$res = snmpwalk($ip, $str_com, '.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.16');

if($index>-1) return $res[$index];

else return $res; }

}

...

$server->service($HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA);

Bandwidth consumption evaluation l.jpg

Bandwidth Consumption Evaluation

  • SNMP versus WS protocol-level and object-level gateways

  • Web Service gateways over:

    • HTTP and HTTPS

    • With and without Compression (zlib)

Snmp test agent l.jpg

SNMP Test Agent

  • Configure the number of objects to return in wsTableRows

  • SNMP data:

    oid.1 (integer 1)

    oid.2 (integer 2)

    ...

    oid.n (integer n)

Conclusions l.jpg

Conclusions

  • SNMP to Web Services gateways implementation

  • Object-level gateways do not require previous knowledge about object definitions

  • Object-level gateways always perform better than protocol-level gateways and perform better than SNMP when return:

Future work l.jpg

Future Work

  • Analysis of performance and memory required by gateways

  • Web Services Management Architecture

    • Configuration (NetConf)

    • Delegation (Script MIB)
