SNMP is an “agentless” method of monitoring network devices and servers, and is often preferable to installing dedicated agents on target machines. Thousands of different network devices and operating systems from different vendors support SNMP for delivering critical information on health and usage metrics, service state, and more.

Benefits

Implementing effective SNMP monitoring with Nagios offers the following benefits:

  • Agentless monitoring
  • Increased server, services, and application availability
  • Fast detection of network outages and protocol failures
