SNMP: Enable Simple Network Management Protocol
The BeyondTrust Appliance B Series supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)1 monitoring for network, hard drive(s), memory, and CPU statistics. This allows tools that collect availability and other statistics via the SNMP protocol to query the B Series Appliance for monitoring purposes.
To enable SNMP for this B Series Appliance, check Enable SNMPv2, or Enable SNMPv3. This enables a SNMPv2 or v3 server to respond to SNMP queries. Enter a value for the Read-Only Community Name, the System Location, and the IP Restrictions, IP addresses that are allowed to query this B Series Appliance using SNMP. Note that if no IP addresses are entered, all hosts are granted access.
If selecting SNMPv3:
- Enter a Username and Password.
- Select the Authentication Method of your choice from the dropdown menu
- Check SNMPv3 Enable Privacy if you want to encrypt communications to the client.
- Enter a Privacy Password and select a Privacy Method.
Click Save Changes when done.
