    you don't normally send snmp, sure you could send traps.  But normally snmp is polled or pulled..

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?



  • Hello,

    in case of pfSense You can enable SNMP and monitor interface statistics as usual.
    But if You can use Zabbix for example, You can monitor following:

    • CPU usage (jumps, load, utilization)
    • disk space (for each filesystem)
    • network interface statistics (for each NIC configured)
    • swap space
    • memory usage

    This is based on running config :)
