Microsoft-Windows-SNMP-Agent-Service

The Microsoft-Windows-SNMP-Agent-Service component enables the computer to process Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) requests. The service receives the SNMP requests from the network, decodes them, and then dispatches them to the appropriate SNMP Extension agent.

The service is also responsible for sending traps on behalf of SNMP Extension agents, forwarding trap messages to the appropriate configured management systems.

If the service is stopped, then the computer cannot process SNMP requests. If this service is disabled, then any services that explicitly depend on it fail to start.

You can use this setting in core installations of Windows Server® 2008, by enabling SNMP-SC in the Windows Foundation package.
