Hi Mahesh,

I work for a provider, and we monitor our customers' links utilization and just give them a url to access to check their utilization with no need for them to run SNMP on their side, we use MRTG on our side (reading SNMP from the CPEs), you can discuss this with your provider if you don't like to configure SNMP on your router(s).

Hi ,

Configure below commands on your router.

snmp-server host XXXX(ip address)

snmp-server community XXXXX(string name)

Thanks :)
