SIM Hardware Polling and SNMP

snmpd had crashed on four servers and was down for over an hour. Hardware status polling did not indicate any problem whatsoever. Isn't hardware polling supposed to connect to SNMP?

Tasks & Logs / View All Scheduled Tasks

Select "Hardware Status Polling for Servers" and click "Edit", then "Next".

SNMP is checked. HTTP and WBEM are not checked.

Re: SIM Hardware Polling and SNMP

I think it also uses Ping, so polling is a check to ensure the server is still reachable. Not too sure why Ping is no longer listed but I'm sure it is used.
