Write a SNMP MIB extension

In this exercise you have to write an extension to your SNMP agent. Although you are free to select the agent software you like, those who do not have any preference might start from the Net-SNMP agent and take a look at the Net-SNMP wiki that describes how to write such extension. Try to implement as much as possible of the MIB definition you have developed as part of the first exercise on SMI. You may include additional objects if you like. A short report describing your activities should be entered into the Blackboard system before June 18.
