Simple Network Management Protocol
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a popular protocol for network management. It is used for collecting information from network devices, such as servers, printers, hubs, switches, and routers on an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
The SNMP Resource in GoAnywhere can be used to send versions 1 and 2 traps from Projects to an SNMP server. This is particularly useful for sending alerts to an SNMP server when a GoAnywhere Project experiences a failure.
SNMP Resource and Tasks
In this example, a Trap is being sent when a file cannot be found on a server. The Trap task contains the OID of the event, and the SNMP Variable is including the name of the file that cannot be found.
