You've just been put in charge of implementing SNMP alarm monitoring on your network. What do you really need to know about SNMP to make this transition work?
You could spend months studying protocol architecture or MIB structure, but that's not necessary to get a monitoring project off the ground.
You don't need to know SNMP on a theoretical level to make your SNMP deployment successful. SNMP telemetry is still telemetry, and most of what you already know still applies.
In fact, your telemetry experience is going to be highly valuable during your SNMP implementation. Even though it uses an IP protocol, SNMP equipment is not plug-and-play simple. You still have to deal with all the usual issues of a telemetry deployment, like data transport, interface compatibility, configuration, and debugging.
But there are also some SNMP-specific issues that you need to be aware of. These issues can potentially turn into pitfalls that can stop your SNMP implementation in its tracks, stretch your project over time and over budget, even reduce your overall visibility of your network.
This white paper will guide you, step-by-step, through each stage of a typical SNMP deployment. Along the way, we'll flag the problems you may run into and offer some suggestions for solving them.
