    WMI and ICMP vs SNMP and ICMP

      Hi all, I'm new to Orion and I'm in the process of setting it up in our environment. I see that servers can be monitored either with WMI & ICMP or SNMP & ICMP. What are the benefits of using each solution?

          For the most part you'll get identical information using either, however with SNMP you'll also get interface information that you won't get with WMI.  The option is available for those who may have a solution already using WMI that either doesn't want to allow SNMP traffic, or go through setting up the SNMP service for each server.
