Net-SNMP, Suite of applications used to implement SNMP.Updated by Editors on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
Net-SNMP is a suite of applications used to implement SNMP v1, SNMP v2c and SNMP v3 using both IPv4 and IPv6. SNMP is a widely used protocol for monitoring the health and welfare of network equipment (eg. routers), computer equipment and even devices like UPSs.
The Net-SNMP suite includes:
- Command-line applications.
A graphical MIB browser (tkmib), using Tk/perl.
A daemon application for receiving SNMP notifications (snmptrapd). Selected notifications can be logged (to syslog, the NT Event Log, or a plain text file), forwarded to another SNMP management system, or passed to an external application.
An extensible agent for responding to SNMP queries for management information (snmpd). This includes built-in support for a wide range of MIB information modules, and can be extended using dynamically loaded modules, external scripts and commands, and both the SNMP multiplexing (SMUX) and Agent Extensibility (AgentX) protocols.
- A library for developing new SNMP applications, with both C and perl APIs.
