Simple Network Management Protocol

An Internet standard developed for managing nodes on an IP network. SNMP is a widely used network-monitoring protocol that's supported on most major platforms. It manages and monitors all sorts of network equipment (including computers, routers, and hubs) by passing data from SNMP agents to workstations, reporting activity in each network device. SNMP 2 provides enhanced security and continuous feedback.
