Oracle OEM & SNMP.

Oracle OEM & SNMP.

Hi All
I'm investigating turning off SNMP on our UNIX servers as we do not use any network monitoring applications (eg NNM or ITO). However I understand that Oracle's Enterprise Manager uses SNMP, but that they have their own daemon, dbsnmp running.
Does anybody know if there are issues for OEM if I turn off SNMP.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Oracle OEM & SNMP.


In our enviroment we have servers running snmp and some not, and both types running Oracles Intelligent Agent, and as far as I can see this works independend of the servers own snmp.

So I think the Intelligent Agent can work on its own as long as you do not need it to trigger any other applications than OEM.

Only by ignoring what everyone think is important, can you be aware of what everyone ignores!
