Custom-OID-Scanning

Custom OID Scanning

Specify what SNMP-related data you wish to retrieve through Custom OIDs.

SNMP is just one of the many network protocols Lansweeper uses to discover the infinite variety of assets out there. Off the shelf, we already scan a lot of information with a broad one-size-fits-all discovery of your network, but some device types have very specific information that you'll want to pull in.

That is exactly what custom OID scanning will enable you to do. Tell Lansweeper what you want to know, for which asset and we'll go get it on every SNMP-enabled device. This increased flexibility allows you to adapt Lansweeper to your specific network environment, scanning the exact data that you need.
