The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) offers the possibility to monitor different network elements from a central location. The various Object Identifiers (OID) are combined in a so-called Management Information Base (MIB). There are different SNMP versions which differ mainly in terms of security.


The function can be activated under Configuration → SNMP. The Kentix devices support SNMP versions 2 and 3 and the following SNMP types:
