SNMP has been around since the 1980s and IT folks have been trying to get rid of it since the early 2000s. It’s only recently, relatively speaking, become commonplace in broadcast and is still a bit of a mystery to many. Once you understand the structure and how it works, it’s really a fairly simple protocol (SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol).
In this session, Jeff Welton and guest Josh Bohn discuss how SNMP works, what MIBs and OIDS are and how you can use them to monitor and control multiple devices from a single manager. They also cover some of the premade SNMP management devices out there, as well as some of the software managers that allow you to roll your own.
