SNMP traps report device failure very quickly, what increases server, services, and application availability. Receiving SNMP Traps in Zabbix is easy. In just a couple of minutes, your instance will be ready to receive, process and react any incoming trap.
Zabbix offers a lot of methods for data gathering, including SNMP. SNMP has been a popular protocol for many years and probably will stay that way – it’s used on routers, switches, UPS devices, storage arrays and lots of other devices. Zabbix 2.2 will improve the existing SNMP support in several ways.
