Dear Mr. Eidelman

SNMP itself (to be more specific, SNMP v1 and v2c) don't need special permissions. The information provided by the SNMP service (or SNMP daemon) depend on its configuration. I am sorry, we have no list which lists every permission setting for any SNMP metric. By default, Windows should either provide information through SNMP or not.
