Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks (VDTN) assumes the use of the Delay-Tolerant Network (DTN) concept for vehicular communications in order to cope several issues, such as highly dynamic network topology, short contact durations, disruption, intermittent connectivity, variable node density, and frequent network fragmentation. These challenging characteristics of vehicular networks affect the design and construction of a network management solution for VDTNs. The standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is widely used on conventional networks and it is not directly deployable on VDTNs.
