SNMP Agent

The SNMP agent is a software that resides in the managed devices in the network, and collects data from these devices. Each device hosts an SNMP Agent. The SNMP Agent stores the data, and sends these when requested by an SNMP Manager. In addition, the Agent can asynchronously alert the SNMP Manager about events, by using special PDUs called traps.
