Note the following details:
- To properly monitor devices on your network, enable SNMP on all devices that support SNMP communications.
Try our free tool, the SNMP Enabler for Windows.
- For Unix-based devices, use the configuration of Net-SNMP version 5.5 or higher that is specific to the type of Unix-based OS in use.
- SAM can monitor SNMP on VMware ESX and ESXi servers versions 3.5 and higher with VMware Tools installed on VMs. For details, consult your VMware documentation or technical representative.
- If SNMPv2c is enabled on a device, SAM attempts to use SNMPv2c to poll the device for performance information. If you only want SAM to poll using SNMPv1, disable SNMPv2c on the device to be polled.
