I would like to configure snmpd to allow my client, IPMONITOR (from solarwinds) to be able to monitor CPU, DISK and memory on my ubunto box.
I am able to get the client to monitor the ports that are open along with ping, but i am not sure what my configuration should look like for the other monitors or even if it is possible to do with ipmonitor.
One of my config files is below.
my second question is whether it is safe to use snmp over the internet? obviously nothing is safe but an unplugged computer 2km's in the ground, but are other people doing this? and are their known exploits?
my third and final question is: what is a trap?
