Define SNMP Set
The Define SNMP Set page maintains a collection of MIB objects included in a SNMP set.
A SNMP set is a set of MIB objects used to monitor the performance of SNMP enabled network devices. The SNMP protocol is used because an agent cannot be installed on the device. You can assign alarm thresholds to any performance object in a SNMP set. If you apply the SNMP set to a device, you can be notified if the alarm threshold is exceeded. The following methods can be used to configure and assign SNMP sets to machine IDs.
Typically the following procedure is used to configure and apply SNMP sets to devices.
The following additional SNMP functions are available and can be used in any order.
Note: Certain command line functions from the Net-SNMP suite of applications are used to implement SNMP v1 and SNMP v2c retrieval of information from SNMP capable devices in accordance with all pertinent copyright requirements.
