I've been trying to learn about SNMP Protocol (as a beginner)

When studying network performance, we look at three main points: - Bandwidth - Response Time - Devices Availability

But which of these info can we get using SNMP? I know of Response time, but not sure of the others

Yes, you can get all those data via SNMP. By using below OID, you can retrieve the data

> OID                           Object Nanme
>      tn3270eRtCollCtlType(Respose Time/Not sure!)
>           ifOperStatus (Interface Status)
>           ifSpeed (Bandwidth)

If you have OID, HERE You can check details of that OID. Google the OID for Device status/Availability.(I couldn't get, but definitely there will! )
