Hi!

I was wondering if it is at all possible to set up some of the SNMP modules on discovered agents. I'm not able to install the agent program on all of the servers we are looking to watch; but I do need to record such things as CPU usage and memory. If this is possible, can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Yes of course, you first need to enable snmp agent in your servers, set up a snmp community and later check out documentation about what is the OID ( a snmp identified) to get CPU, Dist, etc in your snmp agent. It depends on each kind of OS (unix, windows, etc).

After enabling it, you can add network modules who will use SNMP to get that information directy using network.
