Hi to all.. I have some questions about snmp related terminology.
So is it valid the term snmp server or is it better to use snmpd? I think some times networkes use the tem master and agent.. What is valid and what is not
I have always considered snmpd an agent. If a device (router/switch/linux box/XP box) is running some version of snmpd, then it is considered to be a "managed device". In a typical scenario, all managed devices are controlled/monitored by a centralized network management station (NMS) using commands like snmpget, snmpset, snmptrap.
There are probably dozens of network management station software applications available. Some with a hefty price tag. If you want to try some of the open source apps available, then try MRTG or NAGIOS.
