Issue Details

What support Is available for the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) with NI products?


NI does not currently distribute any VIs that specifically address the SNMP protocol, and none of the NI Real-Time controllers ship with a built-in implementation of the SNMP. However, there are other options. 

It is possible to build a set of VIs from LabVIEW using TCP/IP VIs that understand the SNMP protocol. Viodia (an NI Partner) sells an SNMP Toolkit for LabVIEW. Visit their website (External Viodia Site: SNMP Toolkit for LabVIEW) for further information.

For NI Linux Real-Time controllers, there are SNMP tools available via the OPKG package manager. These packages can be located using an OPKG list command and text match for "snmp". Use the following command as a reference: opkg list | grep -i snmp.

Additional Information

Although these packages are available for download, the use of SNMP packages are not supported by NI technical support.
