SNMP Request Sensor (Enterprise Edition only)

The SNMP Request Sensor can query random network devices, supported by SNMP e.g. computers, printers, switches or systems for uninterruptible power supply.

The SNMP Request Sensor supports the current SNMP versions (SNMPv1, SNMPv2, SNMPv3). With help of the sensor, you can query a random number of values (OIDs).
