Join Greg Sowell for an in-depth discussion in this video SNMP, part of Networking Foundations: Protocols and CLI Tools.
- In the SNMP environment,…the server doing collections is known as the Manager.…The Manager will directly run a network management station.…This is the software package responsible…for doing collections and storage.…Some larger designs will distribute…polling engines in geographic areas.…A polling engine is a piece of software that will issue…SNMP requests to manage device's agents.…An agent is a software package that will respond…to SNMP requests from managers.…In short, the agent runs on the device you wanna monitor.…
SNMP can be either read-only or read-write.…Read is the ability to only retrieve information.…Read-write gives you the ability to change…information on a remote device.…Writing can be used to adjust informational data,…or do things like disable or enable ports on a switch.…Management Information Bases, or MIBs,…aren't always necessary for SNMP's function,…but it makes life much easier.…Whenever an SNMP agent is going to be polled,…the information is retrieved by asking…for specific object identifiers, or OIDs.…
Protocols are the lifeblood of modern communication. By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to troubleshoot any network connection and keep the communication flowing.
Note: This course maps to domain 3 of the MTA Networking Fundamentals exam.
- Identify reasons why connectionless transmissions are faster.
- Determine what type of attack a gratuitous ARP announcing itself as a legitimate host indicates.
- State what IGMP snooping is useful for.
- Describe the best approach to use FTP to view and rename files on a server when your client is behind a firewall.
- Assess whether SSH is natively supported on Windows or not.
- List good uses for the arp command.
