For more information about SNMP, see these topics in Q-SYS Help:

  • Q-SYS Core Manager : In Q-SYS 8.3.3 and earlier, configure SNMP in Network Services. In version 8.4 and later, configure SNMP in Network > SNMP.
  • SNMP Query : Use this component in Q-SYS Designer to monitor up to 16 OIDs obtained from an SNMP-enabled device's MIB file.
  • Q-SYS Extensions to Lua : Use the SNMP and SNMPTrap libraries to monitor OIDs and receive trap notifications.
