SNMP Administration

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet-standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks. It uses an extensible design, where the available information is defined by Management Information Bases (MIBs). The MIBs describe the structure of management data using hierarchical namespaces containing object identifiers (OID). Each OID identifies a device attribute that can be read or set via SNMP. FortiWLM MEA provides the SNMP Administration interface that can be used to manage devices in wireless networks.

You can access the SNMP Administration screen through Administration > System Settings > SNMP .
The SNMP Administration screen.

The SNMP service runs in the background. Click the Stop, Restart, or Refresh buttons on the upper-left of the screen to stop, restart, or refresh the SNMP service respectively. The SNMP Service Status field shows the current status of the SNMP service.

Each of the MIBs defined in the system is listed in a table. To download an application MIB, click on the Download MIB link from the Actions column for that application. You may download all the MIBs at once by clicking the Download All MIBs button on the upper-right of the table.

You can register external SNMP managers with FortiWLM MEA from the SNMP Administration screen. SNMP versions v1, v2c, and v3 are supported to receive requests. Versions v1 and v2c both are supported for trap forwarding. The SNMP Administration screen provides the following tabs to configure SNMP parameters:
