The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet-standard protocol used to manage devices on IP networks. The SNMP messages are used to inspect and communicate information about managed objects. SNMP uses Management Information Bases (MIBs) to store available objects in a hierarchical or tree-structured namespace that contains object identifiers (OIDs). An OID identifies the information in the MIB hierarchy that can be read or set via SNMP.
SNMP Views are a subset of MIB objects that can be assigned to an SNMP access group to control write, read, and notification privileges of SNMP users over MIB object information. A view is a user-defined label for a collection of MIB subtrees. Each subtree ID is defined by the OID of the root of the relevant subtrees. Either well-known names can be used to specify the root of the desired subtree or an OID can be entered.
This article provides instructions on how to configure the SNMP Views on your switch.
1.4.7.05 — Sx300, Sx500
2.2.8.04 — Sx250, Sx350, SG350X, Sx550X
Configure SNMP Views on your Switch
The Views page of the web-based utility of your switch allows you to create and edit SNMP views. The default views (Default and DefaultSuper) cannot be changed.
Views can be attached to groups in the Groups page or to a community which employs basic access mode through the Communities page.

View the SNMP Views Table
Step 1. Log in to the web-based utility of your switch then choose Advanced in the Display Mode drop-down list.
Note: In this example, SG350X-48MP switch is used.
Note: If you have an Sx300 or Sx500 Series switch, skip to Step 2.
