Join Greg Sowell for an in-depth discussion in this video SNMP, part of Foundations of Networking: 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.
