I have just started to learn SNMP protocols.
My colleague asks me to "understand the use of free SNMP management probes (available on the internet or in distribution supervision packages)".
Unfortunately I have no clear idea of what is he asking for..
I have installed on my Debian snmp and snmpd.
I have already understood how to make requests using different MIBs (for example
snmpget localhost -v 2c -c public .188.8.131.52.4.1.2021.11.9.0 [to monitor cpu, for example])
But I just cannot understand what he means the use of free SNMP management probes... - something I can download ... where? For free? You have to pay normally for these probes?
If I am not completely mistaken, snmp probes are installed on agents to get information from distant machines?
Where can I download these probes?
Or, if you can correct me - that would be great to understand what is required.
