Summary
SNMP is an application-layer protocol that monitors network devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. Items typically monitored include servers, workstations, routers, switches and hubs. You can configure SMS to be a managed device that is monitored by an SNMP server. The SNMP server periodically requests information from the SMS server. You can also configure SMS to send trap information to the SNMP server. The SNMP server is also referred to as a Network Management System (NMS) and come in a variety of products. SMS supports SNMP v2 and the latest version, SNMP v3, which has additional security and remote configuration capabilities.
