SNMP Traps is a new type of monitoring provided by IPHost Network Monitor. In short: it's an additional method of receiving immediate notifications about changes in state on the device being monitored. Its primary difference is it doesn't use regular polling and thus is the optimal tool to receive important notifications without delay, as soon as possible.
SNMP Traps are mostly used to control network switches, hubs, routers and all the other types of computer networking devices.
Along with the functions mentioned above, IPHost Network Monitor includes other useful system administrator tools, such as monitoring Websites, mail servers, database servers and the other types of devices and services available on the net. Advanced alerting and notification features make it possible to detect upcoming problems in 24/7 mode, thus allowing to prevent possible faults of hardware and software components, including networking facilities, saving valuable time and other resources.
