Practical SNMP Troubleshooting Guide

Do you have an SNMP problem that is reducing your network visibility? Do you spend hours trying to find the cause because you're not sure where to look? You're not alone. Finding and solving problems in your SNMP implementation can be a difficult task.

SNMP is anything but "Simple" (yes, that IS what the "S" stands for). There are many ways that you can end up with problems, especially if you're new to using SNMP.

This guide was written based on conversations with real-world users in DPS Telecom's Tech Support department. That's one more advantage of having in-house tech support - we can repackage our learning into a PDF guide like this one.

This guide helps to identifying and solve SNMP issues with:

  • MIB files
  • Traps
  • Firewalls
  • IP routing, and more..
