EPIC CLI is a ready-to-use, extendable, command-line interface toolkit which provides multi-protocol access to configure network devices.

EPIC XML is an EPIC component that allows XML access to management information that historically has been accessible only using SNMP.


The EMANATE® Protocol Interface Component (EPIC™) Subsystem provides a solution for interfacing non-UDP and non-SNMP protocols with our EMANATE and EMANATE/Lite Agents. EPIC is typically used for the development of non-SNMP protocol handlers which leverage the instrumentation and access control of the SNMP agent subsystem. These protocols include command-line interfaces and industry-specific protocols.

EPIC includes two components: EPIC and the EPIC Adaptation Layer (EAL). The entire EPIC Subsystem is made up of EPIC and the EPIC Adaptation Layer (EAL). An EPIC allows one foreign management protocol to submit get and set requests into the SNMP agent without the use of SNMP or UDP. The EAL allows for multiple foreign protocol transactions and is the layer at which an EPIC integrates into various SNMP Research products.

EPIC allows you to perform management requests by calling the SNMP Research agent code.

The entry point into the SNMP Agent is carefully designed between the User-based Security Model (USM) and the View-based Access Control Model (VACM) layers. This allows authentication by Transport Layer Security mechanisms, while preserving the VACM mechanism implemented as part of SNMPv3.
