SNMP Trap Monitor
Monitor Your Network with the PRTG SNMP Trap Software
SNMP is used to monitor different network devices. Managed devices send SNMP Traps to the network management systems in order to log events, which is a very useful functionality for network monitoring and troubleshooting. PRTG Network Monitor acts as an SNMP Trap monitor: With its SNMP Trap Receiver sensors, it collects and analyzes these messages and, if needed, triggers an alarm.
This way PRTG helps you to stay in control of your network while minimizing the time you need to monitor and manage your network. The SNMP trap server separates important from less important notifications (of course, you can decide what is important and what not when setting up your alarms in the SNMP Trap software).
Even though your network devices constantly send messages to the SNMP Trap monitor, you do not have to go through all the logs manually, and you can rest assured that you will not miss any important notification. Please note that, as with the free syslog server, this sensor can only be used in probe devices.
PRTG is More Than a SNMP Trap Monitor
PRTG is more than simply SNMP Trap software: you can use the powerful network monitoring solution to track bandwidth and check availability, monitor Hyper-V and other virtualized environments, for QoS monitoring (including jitter, network latency, and packet loss monitoring), to monitor process CPU, and more.
The SNMP Trap Monitor is available in two editions. For basic network monitoring, the Freeware Edition may be downloaded and used for personal and commercial use completely free of charge. Need more sensors to monitor a larger IT infrastructure? See our commercial licenses here.
Apart from PRTG, Paessler also offers the web load test software WebStress.
