5.3 Enabling the SNMP Service

The SNMP daemons are disabled by default, and should be enabled if you intend to use SNMP to monitor an Oracle VM Server. You can check your configuration to determine whether the service has been enabled as follows:

# chkconfig --list |grep snmp
snmpd           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
snmptrapd       0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off

To enable the SNMP service, you can start it manually by issuing the following command:

# service snmpd start

To enable the SNMP service permanently, you can issue the following command:

# chkconfig --level 2345 snmpd on

The Oracle VM Server MIB does not define any SNMP traps. You should start the snmptrapd service only if you require it for other purposes.
