How To Install and Configure SNMP on CentOS


In this video, we demonstrate to you how to do setup SNMP or Simple Network Management Protocol. SNMP, or Simple Network Management Protocol, is widely used to communicate with and monitor network devices, servers, and more, all via IP. In this case, we’ll be installing an SNMP agent on a CentOS 6.5 server, which will allow for the collection of data from our server, and make the information available to a remote SNMP manager.

Commands used:

yum -y install net-snmp net-snmp-utils
mv /etc/snmp/snmpdf.conf /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.orig
vim /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
systemctl restart snmpd
snmpwalk -v 2c -c
key -O e 127.0.0.1
