Network monitoring has always being a challenge for network administrators. Their tasks are to keep track of every node in a network and ensure that they behave correctly. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) was designed to aid network administrators in their everyday tasks. A new wave of devices has been coming in the last years where small embedded devices are also being connected to the network. These new devices are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT devices differ in many aspects from traditional networks. However, the main challenge with IoT devices is their hardware constraints (very limited memory and processing resources) and their limited energy budget. Indeed, they are usually powered by batteries and can be deployed in harsh environments. The current monitoring protocols were designed without taking the constraints of IoT devices into account. In an IoT context, there are very limited resources available for monitor constrained devices. While the current protocols do work with these devices they have an unnecessary overhead resulting in a waste of resources that could otherwise be used for some other task, or to save energy. This work proposes a new protocol designed for embedded devices and evaluates it against the state of the art.
