Virtual networks emerged as an alternative for network infrastructure provision. However, the growth in users demand for shared resources over network elements increase allocation complexity. Thus, enabling effective management on each node is key to the global network operation. This work investigate the use of SNMP as a management interface for virtual routers in order to support automation and provide optimal use of physical assets. The solution was evaluated in two virtualization platforms (Xen and VMware) in order the verify the advantages and limitations of the proposed management interface.
