Difference between MIB retrieval and SNMP server hosts

Hi all,

can anybody explain difference between MIB retrieval systems and SNMP server hosts?

The two of these can both be different systems or the same system

A MIB retrieval system usually is an NMS system that actively polls the device to collect SNMP/MIB information (counters, stats, etc)

Whereas a host is typically where traps are sent to from the network devices.

Most NMS systems act as both a retrieval (poller) and host (trap receiver).
