You could spend months studying protocol architecture or MIB structure, but that's not necessary to get a monitoring project off the ground.
You don't need to study SNMP on a theoretical level to make your implementation successful.
But there are some SNMP issues that can potentially turn into pitfalls that can stop your SNMP implementation in its tracks, stretch your project over time and over budget, even reduce your overall visibility of your network - you need to know how to avoid them.
This white paper is a step-by-step guide to SNMP alarm monitoring implementation, focusing on the practical problems that can arise and how to solve them quickly.
Before you start any work on your deployment - even budgeting - you need to begin with a thorough assessment of your existing network, to determine how much of your existing transport and network equipment is compatible with SNMP monitoring. You certainly want to identify any potential replacement issues before you budget, or you may be caught short by unexpected problems. But equally, you want to take advantage of opportunities to reduce your capital expenditures by continuing to use existing transport and equipment.
Take a look at some of the industry's best practices to keep your visibility on your network up to date.

There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.
"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Your network isn't off-the-shelf.
Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
