SNMP and IP Flow

Hi,

Both these commands are unrelated and each cater to different purposes.

SNMP has a wide variety of uses typically associated with device management on networks. There are many articles about SNMP available on the web.

The "ip flow" commands you have pasted is related to NetFlow. NetFlow is an IP traffic monitoring technology from Cisco (also available with various other vendors) which can help you with bandwidth monitoring and traffic analytics. The commands you have pasted is just part of the NetFlow configuration. Read more on NetFlow from here:
