SNMP Standards from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) will help you understand, select and build SNMP-based monitoring & management solutions.

This is a summary of the standards available. Click on the RFC number to go to the IETF related info page.

A complete list of SNMP standards can be found at IETF web site, at their comprehensive web search resource RFC Editor.

SNMP Standards – v1

  • RFC 1157 – Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
