SNMP Tutorial White Paper

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) has long been the de facto standard for managing computer networks. However, SNMP has only recently begun to make inroads in the field of network alarm management (also known as remote telemetry and alarm monitoring), which until the 1990s was dominated by serial protocols transported over dedicated copper circuits.

This SNMP white paper is an introduction to SNMP from the perspective of network alarm management. It summarizes the history and structure of the protocol, and offers some concrete applications for using SNMP for network alarm management.
