How to enable SNMP on Mikrotik RouterOS or CHR


You can enable SNMP from the RouterOS (or CHR) command line. You’ll need Telnet or SSH access to the Mikrotik device.

  1. SSH or Telnet to your Mikrotik device.
  2. Enter the following command to enable SNMP:
snmp set enabled=yes
  1. The above command will enable SNMP v2 with the community string “public” for all IP addresses. To add a custom community string and limit it to a specific IP address, enter the following command:
snmp community add name=COMMUNITY_STRING addresses=IP_ADDRESS_OF_COLLECTOR

Replace COMMUNITY_STRING with your desired community string. Replace IP_ADDRESS_OF_COLLECTOR with the IP address of your collector.

  1. If you used a community string other than public or private, add it to Auvik by following these steps.

All done! Your Mikrotik device can now be discovered and monitored using Auvik.
