What is “SNMP”?
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a family of protocols that provide a means for monitoring and controlling networked devices. Computer vendors have built into some network devices, including some UPS models, network management capabilities so that you can query their status remotely, as well as allow the sending of alerts when a certain type of event occurs. These devices are usually referred to as “smart” devices.
