Allow automatic Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) startup.


[Monitor]    SNMPEnabled=n

n is either 1 or 0. The default value is 0.


When SNMPEnabled is enabled (n = 1), the SNMP agent automatically starts when InterSystems IRIS® data platform starts up.

To enable SNMP monitoring, select Start SNMP Agent at System Startup. You must also have the %Service_Monitor enabled on the Services page (System Administration > Security > Services).

Changing This Parameter

On the Monitor page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Monitor), select Start SNMP Agent at System Startup to enable this setting. There is also a shortcut to enable %Service_Monitor.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change SNMPEnabled in the Config.MonitorOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).
