SNMP router

Most network devices, including network routers, are now SNMP-capable. The protocol has been created for both supervising and controlling the network devices of all kinds. However, SNMP is mostly used for monitoring purposes; using SNMP to actually control devices requires a number of security precautions (especially with out-of-date SNMP versions).

Advanced routers, such as most Cisco models, can be SNMP managers, i.e. they do not only respond to clients’ command, but can send get requests, receive replies, receive traps and notifications. In other words, router can control other SNMP-powered devices. This is especially useful to control networks router have access to, using the SNMP router as a command center.
