SNMPmon  allows you to monitor SNMP-capable devices.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used in network management systems to monitor network-attached devices. SNMP is one of the most widely used, if not the most widely-used network management protocol.
Several routers, WiFi access points, switches, printers, ip cameras, ip phones support SNMP. Computers running Windows, MacOSX, Aix, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, VMware ESX also support SNMP but usually the service needs to be configured and enabled.

Version 5.0.0 runs on iPad using its native resolution.

SNMPmon uses SNMP v1, v2c or v3 to communicate with devices and retrieve information based on RFC MIBs.

The following information can be retrieved and displayed: (if supported by the device)

  • System contact
  • Network interfaces
  • Routing table
  • Arp table
  • TCP connections
  • UDP listeners
  • File systems
  • Printer
  • Digium's Asterisk PBX MIB
  • vmware ESX 4 MIBs
  • Apple's Airport MIB
  • APC nobreaks MIB
  • WTI power management devices MIB. (you can turn on/off power outlets) - new in SNMPmon version 5.3.0

By default, System, Network interfaces and Walk are enabled when you define a new host to be monitored. To add additional MIBs, "tap Default MIB" and select the ones you want.

SNMP walk can be used to retrieve a subtree of management values that is displayed in raw format.

SNMPmon can also monitor network interface throughput from different devices simultaneously and optionaly display a graph.

User can define a set of OIDs to be retrieved (SNMPmon v 3.0.0 or latter). For details read Custom OIDs.

With iPhone/iPod firmware 3.0 and above, retrieved information can be transmitted as email attachment.
