From Oracle Documentation:

Controlling Operations of the UNIX Agent
On UNIX, the lsnrctl command is used to start and stop the agent. The relevant lsnrctl commands are listed in the table below.

If you want to...   Enter the command...  
Start the agent on UNIX platforms  
 lsnrctl dbsnmp_start  
 
Stop the agent on the UNIX platform  
 lsnrctl dbsnmp_stop  
 
Verify status of the agent  
 lsnrctl dbsnmp_status

To see if it is installed:

Go to $ORACLE_HOME/bin
type ls -al dbsnmp

If you see the executable such as:
-rwxr-xr-x   1 oracle   dba      3287696 Dec 22 14:31 dbsnmp

Then you know it is installed.

when I type:
 lsnrctl dbsnmp_status  

I get this:
NL-00853: undefined command "dbsnmp_status".  Try "help"

When I type:

Go to $ORACLE_HOME/bin
type ls -al dbsnmp

I get this:

-rwsr-s---   1 oracle   dba      2986436 Mar 31 14:12 dbsnmp

I am not sure what this means. Is the Intelligent Agent disabled? Because it appears to be installed.

If you can see this file - Intelligent Agent is allready installed

Run command in terminal:
ps -edf | grep dbsnmp

If process exists then Agent is running

Does this mean that the Agent is running?:

 root 23446 23441  0 20:52:25 pts/2    0:00 grep dbsnmp

No, this is your current process
Try:
ps -edf | grep dbsnmp | grep -v grep

It sounds like you have the agent installed but not started.  Did you try:
If you want to...   Enter the command...  
Start the agent on UNIX platforms  
 lsnrctl dbsnmp_start  
You will probably want to read more about using the Agent.  But this is what Oracle says you do to start the agent.
