Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an application layer protocol that facilitates the exchange of management information between network devices. SNMP enables network administrators to manage network performance, find and solve network problems and plan for network growth.

Network and Communications Systems uses SNMP for device monitoring and to gather statistical data about the network. Many of the tools we offer, such as layer 2 traceroute, use the data gathered by SNMP.
