SNMP Monitor

Some of your network’s devices support business-critical operations, while others aren’t quite as high-level and can withstand some downtime. You’ll probably want to set up different levels of monitoring on the services based on device criticality. And, since the devices and systems talk different languages, you need broad support for industry standard technologies to effectively monitor your core business applications and services, including an SNMP monitor.

What is SNMP?

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an IP based application layer protocol that exchanges information between a network management solution and any SNMP enabled device. Network hardware vendors automatically embed SNMP support in their devices; making it an accessible and affordable way to monitor the network. It’s also efficient in managing network performance, and in finding problems and managing network growth.
