I have done a decent amount of looking into setting up devices to use SNMP. Sorry in advance if my terminology appears incorrect.
I am wanting to query a switch (Netgear) status from a directly connected Linux box (RHEL).
Is the switch, the SNMP manager and server? Does this make the Linux PC, the SNMP agent and client?
Does an SNMP daemon run on the switch?
Are the below steps correct to set up the SNMP environment in a LAN:
- Enable SNMP on the switch.
- Yum install necessary packages for SNMP and load MIBs into Linux machine.
