How eG Enterprise Monitors Cisco Router?

To monitor a Cisco router, an eG agent requires the router to be SNMP enabled. SNMP can be enabled in a Cisco router using the following command:

Router(config)# snmp-server community <community string> RO 5

In the above command, <community string> is the SNMP community string that is used for read-only (RO) access. The number 5 refers to the access control list (ACL) identifier.

Cisco routers contain access control lists that allow the SNMP access to be restricted to specific hosts only. In such cases, ensure that the eG external agent has SNMP access to the router.
