Adding an SNMP-based Test

Most network devices and some applications support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). To make it simple for administrators to monitor network devices and applications that are not supported out-of-the-box by eG products, the Integration Console offers another programming-free test-type called the Snmp test type. Before adding an Snmp test you should decide what objects from the Management Information Base (MIB) are to be monitored.

To illustrate the Snmp test, we will be considering two examples. While the first example will help you configure a non-descriptor based Snmp test, the second one will help you configure a descriptor-based Snmp test.
