The SNMP plug-in allows vRealize Orchestrator to connect and receive information from SNMP-enabled systems and devices. You can define SNMP devices as inventory objects by running workflows, and perform SNMP operations on the defined objects.
You can use the plug-in to connect to SNMP devices such as routers, switches, network printers, and UPS devices. The plug-in can also receive events from vCenter Server over the SNMP protocol.
The SNMP plug-in provides two methods of communication with the SNMP devices.
Queries for the values of specific SNMP variables.
Listening for events (SNMP traps) that are generated from the devices and pushed to the registered SNMP managers.
The plug-in contains a set of standard workflows related to managing SNMP devices, queries, the trap host, and performing SNMP operations. You can also create custom workflows to automate tasks in an SNMP environment.
