Enable SNMP on VMware ESXi and ESX servers

SolarWinds Orion uses SNMP to poll performance data from VMware ESXi and ESX Servers. In order to make this performance data available to SolarWinds Orion, you must enable SNMP on your ESXi and ESX Servers.

Consult VMware's documentation for information on enabling SNMP.

VMware only makes a limited amount of information available to SNMP queries for VMware ESXi and ESX Servers version 4.0 and higher. To access additional information on these versions, we use the VMware API.
