James,

I'm no SMS expert, but have some second-hand comments from a customer. SMS
can use SNMP to do get and put information to platforms that support SNMP.
The AS/400 implements the MIB II set. that means you can get status of the
IP interfaces, line descriptions, a minimal amount of system information,
etc.

It can also receive trap messages that are generated by OS/400 and user
applications. OS/400 will do system up/down trap messages, but you have to
program your own trap messages if you want to send them from your
applications. OS/400 provides some APIs for doing this.
