the Simple Network Management Protocol forms part of the internet protocol suite as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). SNMP is used in network management systems to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. It consists of a set of standards for network management, including an Application Layer protocol, a database schema, and a set of data objects. Using the SNMP Inventory all networked devices e.g. printers or not Windows systems can be registered and inventoried.
