Linux Monitoring

This Opspack uses Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to find and monitor important system metrics in Linux. SNMP is an Internet-standard protocol for collecting and organizing information about managed devices on IP networks and for modifying that information to change device behavior. Devices that typically support SNMP for monitoring include routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, and modem racks.
