SNMP Network Management: The Essentials
Network Management is about monitoring and managing multi-protocol networks using the SNMP Protocol. The workshop reviews the SNMP Protocol structure, Network management applications, and query agents. There will be a detailed discussion on identifying objects, MIBs and SNMP devices.
- You will understand the structure and operation of SNMP
- You will use SNMP to identify faulty devices
- You will use RMON to analyse remote network information
- You will interpret and explain MIB I and MIB II (Public/Private/Proprietary)
- You will track the important variables on your network
- You will install and configure a typical Network Management Package
