MSMQ is Microsoft Message Queueing which allows applications running at different times to communicate across networks see http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/msmq/default.mspx and http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/msmqfaq.mspx#ECC

SNMP is the Simple Network Managment Protocol. SNMP is the Internet standard protocol developed to manage nodes (servers, workstations, routers, switches and hubs etc.) on an IP network. SNMP enables network administrators to manage network performance, find and solve network problems, and plan for network growth see http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/cisintwk/ito_doc/snmp.htm
Check the wikipedia article on msmq, it has very comprehensive information on it.


snmp is the simple network management protocol and is mainly used for system management software which monitors PC's, Servers and other devices for events which help administrators to see whether the servers or pc's or devices are still working inside the definitions, and if not to take action.

System management software would be nagios, opennms etc., but there are also commercial ones like HP Openview etc. If you don't use system management software to monitor your environment you won't need that protocol.
