What is SNMP Windows Server monitoring?
Microsoft Windows SNMP uses simple Network Management Protocol, often just called SNMP, a protocol that allows IT administrators to manage equipment and diagnose problems.
System administrators and Performance Engineers can gather metrics from a Windows Server using SNMP.
Please note that Microsoft does not recommend SNMP for Windows server monitoring (NT, W2k, Volume Mount Points, uptime metrics reboot time). Unfortunately Microsoft deprecated SNMP in server 2012 and does not support 64 bits counters. So we are unlikely to see any major changes to it in the future: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831568.aspx
Microsoft Windows Server SNMP monitoring
This package is designed to monitor a Microsoft Windows Server using SNMP.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the Microsoft Windows Server on which SNMP service has been installed and configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:
- System: CPU and Memory utilization
- Storage: Logical Disk utilization (Optional)
- Network: Interface status and utilization (Optional)
The Microsoft Windows Server (SNMP) package supports Windows Server 2003 (R1/R2), Windows Server 2008 (R1/R2), Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
