SNMP proxy agent enhances the management of the networks, where are located different routers with SNMP support. SNMP proxy agent is used as single middle-point between different devices and SNMP collectors. Different devices are devices, that provide information over SNMP, like routers, switches; SNMP collector - end device that manages SNMP information and creates final results for end customers (like graphs for the different parameteres).
SNMP proxy agent benefits:
- Single gateway to manage multiple SNMP devices in a network, reduce SNMP queries load;
- Filtering received information from SNMP devices, provides with opportunity to set filtering actions (allow/disallow) to different SNMP information, that is dedicated to SNMP collector;
- Allows to share one router SNMP information for different SNMP collectors.
