About SNMP Data Logger

SNMP is a network management protocol based on the TCP/IP architecture. This technology is used to provide management and control over devices and applications on the network by means of management information exchange between agents located on network devices and managers located on control stations. Usually, SNMP agents send management information to control systems in the form of variables (such as "free memory", "system name", "the number of running processes"). Our program allows you to receive a list of variables and their values and log them for further analysis. Depending on the values of these variables, you can generate signals and warnings.


SNMP Data Logger custom processes the data to your needs, aggregates and writes real-time data to a text or binary file, MSSQL, MySQL, Access, Oracle or ODBC compatible database, DDE, Excel or to other targets.


What problems can be solved with SNMP Data Logger?


SNMP Data Logger comes with built-in notification or even scripting capabilities. In the case that anything remarkable is found in any of SNMP variable values that the program is currently monitoring, it could simply send off an email or even execute another action. This saves administrators a lot of tedious labor in monitoring many network devices.


Key features of SNMP Data Logger are:


Multiple SNMP agents. Capability to log data from multiple SNMP agents at the same time. You may use fully different connection and data export settings for each agent;

SNMPv1. Our software supports all data types of the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) and uses GetRequest, GetNextRequest requests to retrieve data;

MIB-II support. Can retrieve variable name list from a remote device;

Extended logging features. Can output received data to formatted log files. Supports date/time stamping;

Fast multi-threaded, optimized and efficient architecture;

Data filters. Allow you filter, format, aggregate your data. You may define simple rules or use powerful regular expressions;

Real-time export capabilities. SNMP Data Logger can run as a DDE server export OPC data to old applications;

MS Excel. Data export to ready-to-use MS Excel files;

Databases support. Exporting data to MSSQL, MySQL, ODBC-compatible database (MS SQL, Oracle, MS Access, dBase and others);

Plugins. Many free plugin modules that are extending program features;

Simple, dialog-driven step by step set-up Programming is not required to configure the software to collect data;

It supports various operating systems. The logger runs on all versions starting from Windows 2000, including 32 and 64-bit systems.

Windows service mode. Unlike most other serial logging applications, SNMP Data Logger can run as a service so that it starts as soon as the operating system starts and doesn't require a user to log in and run it. It will continue to run even as users logon and logoff the workstation.


It is extremely easy to use! The configuration process is fully menu-driven and has complete, context-sensitive, online help. You can easily customize all input to your exact specifications. Once you see how easy it is to use SNMP Data Logger, you will never again take data readings by hand!
