Monitoring an SNMP DeviceΒΆ

The following sections will describe a common approach to monitoring an SNMP- enabled device. We’ll start with the basics that can be done without writing a line of code, and then move on to more sophisticated capabilities.

For purposes of this guide we’ll be building a ZenPack to support a NetBotz environmental sensor device. This device has a variety of sensors that monitor temperature, humidity, dew point, audio levels and air flow.

Note

This tutorial assumes your system is already setup as described in Development Environment and Getting Started.
