SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)

What is SNMP?


SNMP is an application-layer protocol used for managing and monitoring network devices. It provides a method to collect and organize security logs from managed devices across an IT network.

In the world of NXLog

NXLog supports parsing SNMP v1, v2c, and v3 trap messages, and for SNMP v3 messages, it supports the user-based security model (USM), providing authentication and encryption functionality.

Instead of parsing log files or piping in input from snmptrapd, NXLog provides convenient and efficient trap variables easily accessible in NXLog fields. There is no need to parse external tools' output manually; thus, it gives a better all-in-one solution for SNMP trap reception.
