Splunk can supports snmptraps,then why people always not preferring Splunk for network monitoring or snmp traps supported technologies?

Hi @ansif,

Good question, Splunk is a platform for machine data and more and more becoming the platform for "everything" or any data so you can easily collect SNMP traps and build you're own NMS on Splunk.

The main reason people aren't going for Splunk when it comes to SNMP is because there is a lot of prebuilt NMS solutions for handling and working with SNMP traps that are out there making them way easier to deploy, if you make an NMS app for Splunk you're sure to change everyone's mind about that.

Cheers,
David

How efficient is Splunk for SNMP polling and receiving SNMP traps?

I found MIB loading and trap configuration is difficult in Splunk.

If Splunk can built an app which has features required for network monitoring that would be great.

"I found MIB loading and trap configuration is difficult in Splunk" I totally agree with you... that's why everyone ends up using traditional NMS solutions...

Would be great if it came preconfigured, then you could easily replace other solutions..
