whats is the purpose of using snmp command alone or using ip flow command alone....or using both commands at a time on router.
snmp-server community public RO
snmp-server community mares1 RW
snmp-server ifindex persist
snmp-server location DXB-DC
snmp-server contact firstname.lastname@example.org
ip flow-cache timeout active 1
ip flow-export version 5
ip flow-export destination 10.1.208.52 9996
Both these commands are unrelated and each cater to different purposes.
SNMP has a wide variety of uses typically associated with device management on networks. There are many articles about SNMP available on the web.
