After supplying the SNMP version/credentials, we need to decide what 'SNMP action' the Monitor will attempt to make against the Element. This choice depends on whether we are trying to GET a single value or OID on the device (ie. SysDescr ), or looking to WALK an entire column in an SNMP Table Array ( ifSpeed column in the ifTable) and retrieve all the values. See the below Get/Walk sections for further explanation of what choice to make here, and examples for how to setup the plug-in.


The 'SNMP Data Type' field depends on what syntax or value that the OID is expected to return, and is used by the plug-in to handle whether we perform String or Integer type comparisons against the SNMP output.
