Network Monitoring with SNMP

Network Monitoring with SNMP

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.
