Small inexpensive SNMP device

By michael_nh ·
Can someone recommend a small inexpensive SNMP device? The size of a small hub at a cost of around $100.00 or less and needs two LAN ports (up and downstream).

It needs to sit on the other side of a non-SNMP device in order to gather said device?s uptime data.

Thanks and best regards,

It sounds like you need SNMP monitoring. Look at What's Up Gold which offers that capability.

Then you would just need a hub or a cheap switch.

Set up a SNMP from a PC on the LAN to report back for one idea; basically what you need is an agent device for reporting and verification the network is working. I found the HP ProCurve 1700-9 switch costing arounf $80 to have good features and it's fully MIB1 and MIB2 supportable. It can supply both LAN information and PING support if so required. And the device collects local RMON (low level metics only). I hope that works for you.
