SNMP is a versatile monitoring tool that can be used for anything and is lightweight as it uses UDP protocol. It can be secured using SNMPv3 encryption and authorization or by creating separate VLANs. Almost every networking device, including cameras, printers, and servers, supports SNMP.
NetCrunch supports all SNMP protocols, tested on thousands of devices over 20 years, adjusted for specific quirks.
NetCrunch handles SNMP v1/v2 traps, decoding their content and recognizing v1 traps sent as v2. It can also forward all traps to another SNMP manager for simplified configuration.
SNMP v3 introduces a secure way of sending trap notifications and informs packets to prevent loss of alerts. NetCrunch supports handling v3 trap notifications and acknowledges informs packets for SNMP agents.
