The importance of SNMP monitoring
Fast, reliable, and compatible
with most devices
SNMP (Simple Network Monitoring Protocol) is a protocol that lets you monitor the performance and availability of your network. The great advantage of SNMP is that it’s extremely easy to use and puts little to no strain on your bandwidth and CPU. SNMP is a platform-independent standard that is compatible with the devices of nearly every manufacturer. For many devices, SNMP is the only protocol that can be used to read data.
SNMP monitoring made
easy with PRTG
Because of its prevalence and ease of use, SNMP is a must for every sysadmin’s toolbox. PRTG makes monitoring with SNMP easy thanks to preconfigured sensors (monitoring elements with multiple measurement points) and an intuitive, user-friendly interface.
PRTG and SNMP help you get a handle on your entire network
SNMP monitoring with PRTG provides you with valuable insight on the performance and availability of your network. Are all your switches and routers working properly? What’s the status of your VoIP connections? Is the CPU load too high on individual servers? How much traffic is flowing through your VPN connections? What’s going on with your bandwidth? SNMP monitoring with PRTG is vital to keeping your network running smoothly.
The advantages of PRTG
as an SNMP monitoring tool
PRTG monitors your entire network infrastructure, including servers, routers, switches, hard drives, and printers. It not only lets you confirm that everything is running properly, but also provides you with long-term statistics on server loads and bandwidth consumption. 70+ preconfigured sensors (monitoring elements with multiple measurement points) make it easy to set up your SNMP monitoring.
Quick and effective troubleshooting
Bandwidth consumption is slowly reaching a critical level in your network? PRTG lets you identify and remove bandwidth hogs or determine whether more bandwidth is needed. Overloaded routers or switches are impairing your company’s communication? PRTG identifies sources of errors so you can fix them immediately.
Thanks to PRTG and its customizable alarm feature, you’ll be promptly informed of errors so you can minimize downtime and optimize performance.

“Hey Luciano, what would you tell administrators looking to set up SNMP monitoring with PRTG?“
“With PRTG, you not only get the many standard sensors which exist for SNMP monitoring, but also the ability to monitor devices even without having a native sensor for them. You can thus monitor practically any SNMP-compatible device! First of all, obtain the relevant MIB file containing a definition of all available OIDs from the manufacturer of your hardware. Then use the MIB importer to make the MIBs available to PRTG, and create an SNMP Library sensor. Finally, select the properties of the target device you’d like to monitor, and within no time at all you’ll have the data you need!“
