SNAMP represents a protocol bridge between manageable IT resources with different monitoring&management protocols and your monitoring&management software. SNAMP can help you to reduce the management costs for the complex IT infrastructure.


  • CPU Arch: x86/x64
  • Runtime: Java SE 8 or higher (Oracle HotSpot or OpenJDK is recommended but not required)
  • OS: Ubuntu (Server) 12.04 or higher, Windows 7/8/10, Windows Server 2003/2012, RedHat, OpenSUSE, CentOS
  • RAM: 2Gb or higher

For developers

  • Maven
  • JDK 8 or higher (Oracle HotSpot or OpenJDK is recommended but not required)

How to build

First, you should build SNAMP using Development profile. After, you can switch to Release profile and build SNAMP Distribution Package.

Not all dependencies located at the Maven Central. Some dependencies are proprietary libraries. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare your local Maven repository as follows.

Third-party repositories

SNAMP uses the following third-party repositories:

You can do this automatically using maven utility or IDE. Generally, you need to pass

-Dmaven.wagon.http.ssl.insecure=true -Dmaven.wagon.http.ssl.allowall=true -Djsse.enableSNIExtension=false

to the maven process when first importing the project.

If you use IntelliJ IDEA 15/2016 as IDE - follow the instructions:

  1. Open File -> Settings menu
  2. Find Build, Execution, Deployment -> Build Tools -> Maven -> Runner
  3. Paste JVM args described above into VM Options text box
  4. Go to Maven Projects tab
  5. Select snamp module
  6. Execute clean action
  7. Execute validate action

Note: Please verify that IntelliJ IDEA correctly recognized Maven Home (M2_HOME environment variable)

Also, you can do this without IDE with the following command:

cd <snamp-project-dir>/third-party-libs/bundlized/snmp4j
export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx512m -Dmaven.wagon.http.ssl.insecure=true -Dmaven.wagon.http.ssl.allowall=true -Djsse.enableSNIExtension=false"
mvn clean package

Other libraries

SNAMP uses the following third-party libraries not placed on any Maven repository: IBM WebSphere MQ libraries for Java IBM WebSphere MB (Integration Bus) libraries for Java

Copy WebSphere the following libraries to third-party-libs/binaries/ibm/websphere folder: com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar com.ibm.mq.jar com.ibm.mq.jmqi.jar com.ibm.mq.headers.jar

WebSphere MQ classes for Java located in MQ_INSTALLATION_PATH/java/lib repository on Linux or MQ_INSTALLATION_PATH\java\lib on Windows.

See WebSphere MQ classes for Java for more information about WMQ Java API.

Execute third-party-libs/binaries/mvn-install.sh shell script.

Running tests

SNAMP project contains two category of tests:

  • Unit tests located in their bundles and running at test phase
  • Integration tests located in osgi-tests project

It is necessary to install all OSGi bundles into local Maven repository before running integration tests. Therefore, integration tests can be executed at site build phase of osgi-tests project


SNAM project provides the following Maven profiles:

  • Development profile disables all unit and integrations tests in the project
  • Release profile enables to assembly final SNAMP Distribution package on top of Apache Karaf container


SNAMP uses Semantic Versioning for each component separately.

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  • MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

But versioning policy of SNAMP distribution package based the following rules:

  • Every MINOR change in the component cause increment of the MINOR version of distribution package
  • Every PATCH change in the component cause increment of the PATCH version of distribution package
  • Every MAJOR change in the adapter/connector = MINOR + 2 version of distribution package
  • Every MAJOR change in the core bundle cause recursive changes in adapters/connectors. Therefore, MAJOR version of package should be changed
