SNMP probes

The SNMP probes use the SNMP protocol to query a particular device for a list of OIDs, which are then traversed and the results passed back to the sensors.

Discovery supports SNMP versions 1, 2c, and 3. Discovery uses version 1 and 2c by default. You must enable support for version 3. MID Servers support all SNMP protocol versions by default. You can set a MID Server to only support specific versions of SNMP.

SNMP patterns

The Network Router pattern replaces the several SNMP-related probes for the discovery of routers and switches. See New patterns for the Jakarta release.
