SNMP Agent

An SNMP Agent or client is an application embedded in the 2020 IMG that performs the operational role of receiving and processing requests, sending responses to the manager, and sending traps when an event occurs. The 2020 IMG can be configured to be an SNMP Agent. The SNMP agent software must have three sets of hooks into the SNMP Manager. Use this pane to configure the SNMP Agent.

Field Description

SNMP System Name

SNMP Agent Network Interface

This is automatically populated with the <Ctrl Interface> IP address of the 2020 IMG which is being configured as an SNMP Agent. Either accept the default or select an IP Address from the drop down menu displaying all IP addresses configured on the 2020 IMG that can be used for IP Services.


Query Interval (In Minutes) Default = 5 minutes

The 2020 IMG needs to issue an Info Query at a set interval of time to gather the statistics collected by the SNMP agent. The result of these queries is to populate a database with the private MIB information that has been collected. The Query Interval field determines the intervals with which the Info Queries are sent. The interval can be configured by selecting the interval time from the drop down menu of this field. The Query Interval range can be set between 1 and 50 minutes with the Default value being 5 minutes. Refer to the SNMP Private MIBs topic for more information.
