Extension of Control Interface / external SNMP agent
The request to configure most (or all?) NITB parameters not only by VTY but also via an external SNMP agent via the control interface has come up several times.
The control interface would have to be extended with all relevant (which are those?) parameters.
An external SNMP agent would have to be developed, attaching to the control interface. python snmp might be a good candidate as basis for that.
