How to Configure SNMP on Rocky Linux 9 VPS Servers

Here are the steps to configure SNMP on Rocky Linux 9:

  1. First, you need to install the SNMP packages. You can do this by running the following command:
    sudo dnf install -y net-snmp net-snmp-utils
  2. Once the installation is complete, start and enable the SNMP service by running the following commands:
    sudo systemctl start snmpd
    sudo systemctl enable snmpd
  3. You can verify if the service is running by running the following command:
    systemctl status snmpd
  4. The SNMP configuration usually resides in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf for v1 and v2 of the SNMP protocol. If v3 is going to be used, as recommended, additional configuration is located at /var/lib/net-snmp/snmpd.conf. This file does not save changes while the daemon is running, so the daemon needs to be stopped before modifying the file.

Please refer to the official documentation for more information.
