I installed a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) daemon for the first time today. This all started because my web hosting service customer has a new client that will be generating a lot of traffic. He has setup MRTG on his Windows web server but the traffic must be monitored on the router/firewall, a Debian Lenny system. MRTG uses SNMP to acquire the remote data so a daemon is needed on the firewall to handle the requests. I installed Net-SNMP from the Debian repositories. The basic configuration wasn't too difficult and hopefully it's enough to get MRTG working.
