How to set up an end-to-end SNMP data collection system?


Aim: We are creating a cloud server which will collect diagnostic data (like bytes exchanged, SNR) from remote SNMP enabled network devices (like Routers, Switches).

The SNMP devices may be located in a private network.

We discussed with a cable vendor who quoted,

Quote:
SNMP on modems is only accessible via the modem IP, which is traditionally a private IP within an MSO. Companies will generally deploy a probe or agent on-site that collects the SNMP data and delivers it back to their main operation.

SNMP proxies are also a possibility.
He talks about about deploy probes, proxing, on site agent.

We want to know how those mechanisms are actually implemented in detail.

Some references or few lines of introduction about the set up would be really helpful.

Welcome to LQ!
Best to ask the vendor, since you will be a prospective client and need to know the impact...

And unless this vendor has a proprietary solution, then he will likely be using some of these resources.

I know it's a lot, but you have to have some references, else any vendor could say anything, but it still wouldn't mean anything.

Getting snmp data from private-IP devices may be a bit tricky, but it can be done.

Thank you for the much needed compilation.

I will go through all of it and I am sure to come up with more queries.
