I am involved in a network monitoring project where our goal is to monitor thousands of network devices from a Telco. We are not owner of these nodes, but our objective is to monitor them so we could validate that the Telco meets the network availability requirements. For security purposes, the Telco accepted to give us access the equipements, but only via a SNMP proxy.
So my question is: Is NPM able to monitor devices using SNMP V2c, V3 via a SNMP proxy? Our Telco recommended to use complex solutions such as Netcool and OpenView, but since we are already using NPM, we would prefer to avoid using another monitoring engine.
Any advide would be apréciated! Thanks!
