About SNMP

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used for most network monitoring and management tasks. To properly manage devices on your network, you must enable SNMP on all devices that are capable of SNMP communications. The steps to enable SNMP differ by device, so consult the documentation provided by your device vendor.
