it is as simple as running the following commands on your individual hosts from a console session. Replace YOUR_STRING with the community string that you would like to use.

esxcli system snmp set --communities YOUR_STRING

esxcli system snmp set --enable true

on ESXi 5.1 and later you can monitor tons of stuff using SNMP!

you can already use a lot of our SNMP sensors like SNMP traffic, SNMP Diskspace;

from VMware you can download ESX MIBs,

latest would be

VMware-mibs-5.5.0-1303627.zip

that offers a lot of SNMP counters that you can use.
