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:
|Provide data||Data can be queried from an external device|
|Send Trap||Alarm messages are sent to external devices|
|Retrieve data||The Kentix device queries data from an external device|
The OID glossary with the individual values can be downloaded directly from the device and shows you a CSV file with all possible query values of your system.
