The simple network management protocol (SNMP) is the most commonly used for network management. It is used for grouping data from several devices more precisely network devices like printers, switches, hubs, IP networks, and servers. The most common protocol used in monitoring devices is SNMP as it can be connected to any device or server and can gather information from any source of data it being CPU, RAM, or any other device.
