Re: SNMP vrs SYSLOG

The SNMP is a suite of 2 protocols: SNMP and SNMP-TRAP which you can manage what happens in your network, the network management uses this suite to monitor the devices.

You can use simultaneously both protocol because they have different port: SNMP (UDP/162) SYSLOG (UDP/514), but they are very similar; so I advice you to use a network management (SNMP) and disable SYSLOG on your devices.

Moreover the SNMPv3 is crypted meanwhile the SYSLOG is in clear text
