Poll SNMP information with an agent

Only agents deployed on Linux-based computers can poll for SNMP information. You must install an SNMP package to poll for information. Agents support gathering information from SNMP v2 and v3.

SNMP polling provides the following types of information:

  • Location or contact information
  • Information used for Hardware Health
  • Information used for Asset Inventory
