SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol; Internet protocol employs their use as managing devices to monitor or observe network-attached devices. A group of devices is connected to a computer network; they are usually managed by the manager. SNMPV2 and SNMPV3 represent the various versions of the management protocol.

Simple Network Management Protocol version 2 is the acronym for SNMPv2, which is a device used for monitoring the devices in a computer network. Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 is an acronym for SNMPv3, which is the most recent version of SNMP.

SNMPv2 has a very complex system for its security; the system is a part based one while the SNMPv3 security system is cryptographic. SNMPv1 managed devices can employ the use of SNMPv2 agents as their proxy agents. SNMPv2 has a feature that allows the acknowledgment of reception of messages by managers.
