SNMP APIs and Libraries

SilverCreek's APIs are written in C++ and are accessible through a Tcl or Python shell or command line or a Tcl or Python program. Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. Tcl, the Tool Command Language, is a flexible, interpretive language, popular for network applications.

APIs are application programming interfaces that execute requests for services (for example getting the value of an SNMP object identifier) on behalf of a program making the request.

Good quality and mature APIs can greatly reduce development time, because the developer can use the APIs as building blocks to create his application, without having to create the building blocks themselves.

With our SilverCreek APIs and libraries, developers can migrate home grown applications from obsolete and/or unsupported libraries and APIs, thereby preserving the investment in these applications.
