Folks - SEA is shipped with Solaris. It is the default SNMP agent. It is

It is buggy, unpredicitible, unreliable and works worse if you change the
community strings.

If you have the option of using USCD SNMP do so, save yourself some grief.

I evaluated Sun Management Center but it looked like it was going to
be cost prohibitive (since the modules we cared about weren't free),
and the agents didn't play with NetView well as they used SNMPv3 user
authentication and were set up  to talk with the SunMC console.

SunMC by itself looked mighty impressive, but it wasn't a good fit for
the budget we had the sort of monitoring we wanted to do.  We ended up
using a TEC logfile adapted to watch the syslogs for certain events.
