I have read and stuidied about SNMP in my A+ class but what can i really do with it. My teacher failed to give me a good idea about what it really can do for me as a network administrator. I see all of these devices that have SNMP support but dont know what to do with it. we have printers switches wireless access points and copiers that all support this. im wondering how to set this up. from what i have read i can manage all SNMP devices from a "Network Management System". it can also provide overview to me of what happens as far as trafic, errors and such (and some software will create charts for a better understanding).
