On large networks, it’s clearly not practical to manage each device manually. Administrators would have to spend large portions of their time running around the network, either physically or virtually, adjusting configurations and collecting log entries. In this video, learn how to use the Simple Network Management Protocol to monitor and manage network devices in a centralized fashion.
- [Instructor] The simple network management protocol,…or SNMP, provides network administrators…with a means to centrally configure…and monitor network devices.…On large networks, it's clearly not practical…to manage every network device manually.…Administrators would have to spend…large portions of their time running around the network,…either physically or virtually,…adjusting configurations and collecting log entries.…This is time consuming work…that is not particularly productive.…
SNMP automates many of these tasks,…performing the heavy lifting for administrators…who can then spend their time doing design work…or higher level monitoring.…Let's take a look at how SNMP works.…There are three components involved…in SNMP network administration.…Manage devices are all of the network devices…around your organization.…These include routers, switches, wireless access points,…firewalls, and any other device that supports SNMP.…
The SNMP agent is a piece of software…that runs on the managed device…and allows it to communicate with the SNMP service.…
