    I am just wondering the OSI model for network management. Is it actually used, referred to etc in todays world?

    Being at the bottom of the I.T. world I dont have a clue. I want to know if the stuff I am learning is going to be useful in the future. What are your views on the OSI model for network management.

    Its important to understand the OSI model. It helps you to visualise what’s going on with network communication. The stuff in the lower layers, Physical, Data Link and Network will help enormously with understanding the differences between switches and routers and things like the MAC address are covered too. In short, the OSI model is worth studying.

    I mean:

    OSI Network Management Model:

    1) Configuration Management

    2) Performance Management

    3) Accounting Management

    4) Fault Management

    5) Security Management

    TBH I guess its just a framework one should follow, or network mangement software.

    My bad. To be honest I have never studied it. We use the ITIL framework where I work.

    Theres a lot of management protocols about SNMP, JMX, SDM, DMTF, WBEM, CDM, DASH, SMASH, CIM, ASF, WS-Management, WMI, DTrace...

    Its endless, is it important, I dunno depends what your job is i guess... :D

    SNMP is the one we have to study. As well as ISO framework for management and OSI model management!
