Understanding a Request file
A request file is built within SNMP Management Console to organize, group, and define specific SNMP requests that may be made of an agent.
 
Each request can be for one or more SNMP objects, and the response to the request may be displayed in list, chart, table, or form format. A number of request files come with SNMP Management Console, but in general, request files are built by you to suit your specific needs with regards to the matrix that your site needs to collect.
When SNMP Management Console polls an SNMP agent for information, a request allows it to receive information about many different objects simultaneously. You can create your own requests (or edit the requests provided) using the MIB Editor.
