SNMP Monitoring


OpManager predominantly uses SNMP for monitoring health and availability of every element in the Enterprise Network & IT infrastructure. ManageEngine OpManager is a complete end-to-end, proactive, business centric IT infrastructure monitoring software. It provides a unified monitoring console for every device in your network.

OpManager monitors Routers, Switches, Firewalls, Wireless Access points, WAN links, VoIP services, Servers, Services, URLs, Applications, Database, UPS, Printers and much more…

OpManager uses SNMP for monitoring your critical -

  • Servers (Windows/ Linux/ Solaris) for CPU, Memory, Disk, Server Temperature, RAID failures, IO statistics, etc… (Alternatively you can also monitor server resources using WMI or CLI)
  • Applications viz. Oracle, Lotus Domino, RDBMS related monitors and etc… [It also supports monitoring Microsoft’s Active Directory, SQL and Exchange]
  • Routers, Switches, Firewall, and Wireless Access points for CPU, Memory, Temperature, Backplane utilization, Active Connection counts, Interface or port wise traffic details, Error and discards and much more…
  • Other Infrastructure devices like UPS, Printers, Temperature sensors etc…
  • Besides the out-of-the-box monitors, you can configure custom SNMP monitors using OpManager. This facilitates monitoring of performance for almost any device that is pingable and has SNMP enabled!

You can also configure OpManager as SNMP Trap destination, to read into network faults reported by other Network Management Systems over a single OpManager console.

OpManager is an ideal and affordable network monitoring tool for managing today’s complex networks. The small network 10 node edition is available free of cost. The flexible, cost-effective device-based pricing starts at $995 to monitor 50 devices.

SNMP Explorer

SNMP Explorer is a versatile networking tool for IT professionals. If you have SNMP managable devices in your network, SNMP Explorer provides a tree view of your SNMP managable devices, provides a way to talk to or from the devices, provides a flexible log of transactions, and permits you to transact with the devices with simple yet powerful scripts.

Devices that support SNMP provide a standard, powerful network management interface. Yet this protocol is not supported by any standard PC tools such as web browsers, FTP clients, or the like. Only minimum SNMP capabilities can be found in freeware or shareware, and full SNMP support typically costs much, much more. Unless you have a more expensive SNMP tool already, you need SNMP Explorer.


  • SNMP Explorer can read the Managed Information Blocks definition files and therefore can work with MIBs by name.
  • SNMP Explorer can perform SNMP Get, Get Next, Get Bulk, or Set.
  • SNMP Explorer supports a versatile log capability which can display any message content logically.
  • SNMP Explorer message creation window makes it easy to construct SNMP messages with multiple parameters.
  • SNMP Explorer provides a powerful scripting language which magnifies it's power. With SNMP Explorer you can easily write simple scripts to configure or monitor a whole network.
