17.6.2. Running the Net-SNMP Daemon

The net-snmp package contains snmpd, the SNMP Agent Daemon. This section provides information on how to start, stop, and restart the snmpd service, and shows how to enable or disable it in the multi-user target unit. For more information on the concept of target units and how to manage system services in Fedora in general, refer to Chapter 7, Services and Daemons.

17.6.2.1. Starting the Service

To run the snmpd service in the current session, type the following at a shell prompt as root:
systemctl start snmpd.service
To configure the service to be automatically started at boot time, use the following command:
systemctl enable snmpd.service
This will enable the service in the multi-user target unit.

17.6.2.2. Stopping the Service

To stop the running snmpd service, type the following at a shell prompt as root:
systemctl stop snmpd.service
To disable starting the service at boot time, use the following command:
systemctl disable snmpd.service
This will disable the service in the multi-user target unit.

17.6.2.3. Restarting the Service

To restart the running snmpd service, type the following at a shell prompt:
systemctl restart snmpd.service
This will stop the service and start it again in quick succession. To only reload the configuration without stopping the service, run the following command instead:
systemctl reload snmpd.service
This will cause the running snmpd service to reload the configuration.
