SNMP devices monitor system health and can be used to send messages when configured thresholds are exceeded.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet-standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks. An SNMP device listens to monitor the health and well being of various systems around a facility.
In a Vocera Platform implementation, an SNMP device is attached to the physical or virtual server and receives messages when certain thresholds are crossed. The SNMP device is constantly listening for these messages and when one is delivered, the facility is notified via an SNMP Monitoring Tool. This Monitoring Tool is configured by the facility's IT Department to notify the appropriate individuals when a message is received.

|SNMP Port||This field contains the Port number where the Monitoring Tool is located, usually 162.|
|Community||This field contains the password that is utilized by the SNMP Monitoring Tool. This must match for traps to be received by the Monitoring tool.|
