Agent properties

The simple network management protocol (SNMP) agent provides the related management system with information on activities that occur at the Internet Protocol (IP) network layer.

The SNMP service sends MIB information in response to an SNMP request or in an SNMP trap message.

You can configure the following agent properties by using the Agent tab on the SNMP Service Properties dialog box:


Agent Service Select if this computer:


Manages physical devices, such as a hard disk partition.


Uses any applications that send data using the TCP/IP protocol suite. This service should always be enabled.

You can also configure agent properties such as:

  • The location of the contact person.

  • The name of the person to contact, such as the network administrator.
