SNMP is a communications protocol that allows remote monitoring and remote management of devices running on an Ethernet network.
Remote management requires:
1. A communication protocol (SNMP protocol);
2. Management Information Bases, MIB.
3. An SNMP agent.
4. An SNMP Manager.
The SNMP protocol runs at the application level of the TCP/IP protocols stack and is used by managers and agents to exchange messages.
An SNMP manager is a software application through which a user can send requests to an SNMP agent.
An SNMP agent is a software application that runs on a specific device and monitors certain aspects of it.
