Monitoring SMC with SNMP

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a communication protocol that allows network administrators to monitor devices and diagnose network and hardware issues remotely.

SMC offers the SNMP service via the command fwadmin-snmp.

This service is not enabled by default on the SMC server. If you do enable it, you do not need to enable it again after restarting the server, as this setting will be remembered.

The SMC server uses SNMP version 2c by default. You may however choose another version (version 1 or v3 USM) in the configuration file located in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.
