This document defines additional protocol operations for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) that support more efficient configuration management via SNMP. The CallRequest and CallResponse PDUs add an RPC style operation invocation mechanism to SNMP. The CompoundRequest and CompoundResponse PDUs add a mechanism to send multiple SNMP operations in a single SNMP message.
