SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. FreeNAS® can be configured as a bsnmpd(1) server using FreeBSD's simple and extensible SNMP daemon. When you start the SNMP service, the following port will be enabled on the FreeNAS® system:

  • UDP 161 (bsnmpd listens here for SNMP requests)

Available MIBS are located in /usr/share/SNMP/mibs and /usr/local/share/SNMP/mibs.

Figure 8.11a shows the SNMP configuration screen. Table 8.11a summarizes the configuration options:
