Using the SNMP Agent

In order to use WebLogic’s SNMP agent, it needs to be enabled and configured using the Administration Console.

It may happen that the default value for the port, 161, is already used by the operating system on which you have deployed WebLogic. Table 22-1 lists the other configuration settings that are available for the SNMP agent.
