SNMP daemon on Linux machines

Suitable SNMP software and instructions should be available from the vendor of your Linux distribution.

  • After installing and configuring this daemon you should be able to monitor vital system data (e.g. the CPU load) using PRTG Network Monitor. Simply create a new sensor, choose "SNMP Library" sensor and select the "Basic Linux Library" from the list of available libraries.

For a List of available sensors of the Basic Linux library (UCD-SNMP-MIB), please see How do I monitor system parameters like memory, CPU and disks on Linux systems via SNMP?
