SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) lets you manage and monitor network performance, troubleshoot problems with your network and better prepare for future network growth. It is a flexible technology that can be used across operating systems and device types. In WhatsUp Professional, there are three types of SNMP Monitors that you can assign to a device: Passive Monitors, Active Monitors and Performance Monitors. The differences between these monitors come in the way they gather and report data.
