SNMP (Simple Network Monitoring Protocol) has been in existence since the late 1980's and serves as the default monitoring method for most networking devices. However, it can sometimes prove challenging to monitor at scale. There are many different ways to deal with both polling and traps, and a lot of careful consideration is involved in managing these processes correctly and effectively.
SNMP Traps & Polling
Having your devices send SNMP traps would be of no use unless you are alerting from them. Added to this, polling devices would be unwise if you didn’t compare the results to thresholds, before working out the relevance of the data collected. Opsview Monitor can help take the pain away! Out of the box, Opsview is capable of handling SNMP traps and polling SNMP devices as required- no more messing around with data collection!
