    The usual recommendation for SGMP is to talk to the folks at Nysernet.
    An initial implementation was done at RPI. It's more or less public
    (not public domain, but freely distributable). Nysernet cleaned it up
    a good deal, and is selling it for a minimal cost (not enough to make
    money -- just enough to cause everybody maximal administrative
    overhead).

Actually we rewrote it from scratch and saved the "look and feel" of
the applications. Additionally we added about 10 more applications
including a BSD/UNIX agent/server. We followed the CMU model
for Tektronix/VMS/TCP administratively, becaue we heard it worked,
time will tell though. However we have distributed a LOT of university/
non-profit licenses (source) so far, and we release a new version
about every quarter so its not an orphan. These are important due to the
growing network management needs in terms of more complex and useful tools.

    (By the way, I don't know who to contact at these Nysernet or
    Berkeley, so please don't ask. At cisco, you might contact
    customer-service@mathom.cisco.com.)

snmplisc@nisc.nyser.net does work for people who are interested.
