Any technical education in monitoring would be incomplete without a thorough understanding of SNMP. SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol. In real life, it is often not simple; does not only apply to network devices; and often cannot be used for management of devices, only monitoring. It is definitely a protocol, however. 🙂
