Abstract Supporting multi­point group communications in the network manage­
ment platform is essential for improving scalability and responsiveness
of management applications. With the deployment of IP multicasting
as the standard infrastructure for multi­point group communications in
the Internet, the integration of IP multicasting in SNMP becomes signif­

efficient and easy­to­integrate framework for integrating IP Multicast in
standard SNMP agents. The proposed framework enables managers to
re­configure the agents' group membership (e.g., join and leave) and the
communication model (e.g., one­to­many, many­to­one and many­to­
many) dynamically based on the application requirements. This frame­
