SNMP Query (String) service

The SNMP Query (string) service, formerly called Generic String (SNMP), will collect any OID using a configurable OID parameter field. It is returned as a string in N-able N-central's database regardless of the original SNMP data type. Thresholds cannot be applied to Generic String.
