The embedded computing devices deployed within the Internet of Things are expected to be resource constrained. This resource constraint not only applies to memory and processing capabilities, but the low-power radio standards utilized further constrain the network interfaces. The IPv6 protocol provides a suitable basis for interoperability in the IoT, due to its large address space and a number of existing protocols that function over IP and its flexibility. We investigate how existing IP-based network management protocols can be implemented on resource-constrained devices. We present the resource requirements for SNMP and NETCONF on an 8-bit AVR based device.
