SolarWinds SAM can monitor the performance of any SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, or SNMPv3 enabled device on your network. Consult your device documentation or a technical representative of your device manufacturer to acquire specific instructions for configuring SNMP on your device.

Notes:

  • To properly monitor devices on your network, you must enable SNMP on all devices that are capable of SNMP communications.
  • Unix based devices should use the configuration of Net-SNMP version 5.5 or higher that is specific to the type of Unix-based operating system in use.
  • SolarWinds SAM is capable of monitoring VMware ESX and ESXi Servers versions 3.5 and higher with VMware Tools installed on virtual machines. For more information about enabling SNMP and VMware Tools on your VMware device, consult your VMware documentation or technical representative.
  • If SNMPv2c is enabled on a device you want to monitor, by default, SolarWinds SAM attempts to use SNMPv2c to poll the device for performance information. If you only want SolarWinds SAM to poll using SNMPv1, you must disable SNMPv2c on the device to be polled.
