Don't Let SNMP "Upgrades" Gut Your Monitoring Capability

It's natural to think newer technology must be better. But we've all experienced "upgrades" that actually provide less capability than the equipment they replace.

Upgrading your alarm monitoring to SNMP can enhance or reduce your capabilities, depending on the actual SNMP equipment you use. That's why its important to be able to evaluate the full capabilities of SNMP alarm systems before you buy.

This month's White Paper is a complete guide to the SNMP Management Information Base (MIB), which is your best guide to an SNMP device's real capabilities. This paper is an easy guide to reading and understanding the MIB — and it's an essential must-read before you plan your SNMP upgrade.
