This article describes how to configure SNMPD after installation.
To install snmpd, simply install net-snmp
# pacman -S net-snmp
The net-snmp package only provide a minimal configuration file in /var/net-snmp/snmpd.conf. This file should not be modified.
You may use the snmpconf command to generate your snmpd.conf file:
# snmpconf -g basic_setup
The file will be generated in your current directory. Move it in one of the directories of the SNMPCONFPATH (net-snmp-config --snmpconfpath).
You need to authorize the snmp traffic to income in your machine. Edit the /etc/hosts.allow file and add an entry for the snmpd daemon with the authorized addresses.
Start SNMPD with the rc.d script. Add it to your /etc/rc.conf if needed.
