Protocols used for Monitoring – WMI, SNMP, SSH, IPMI


While assigning systems into Monitoring we need to mention the protocol for the particular system we want to monitor. Power Admin Server Monitor requires you to mention this.

WMI – Windows servers uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation)

SNMP – Windows and Linux servers uses SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocols)

SSH – Linux and firewalls uses SSH protocol (Secure Shell)
