Wowza SNMP Agent: Failed to Start

Good day,

I tried to setup the SNMP monitoring of wowza streaming engine following the guide:

However I keep getting the error “SNMP Agent: Failed to start” in the logs after restarting the server.

I have not been able to get much help on the forum.

Any help I receive on this will be much appreciated.



Thanks for contacting the Wowza Community

Did you see this note and confirm you meet these requirements?


This article assumes that you've set up an SNMP-managed network and have functional knowledge of its use.  

SNMPv2c capability is supported in Wowza Streaming Engine™ 4.5.0 or later. It enables you to monitor status for different media server SNMP objects but not configure those objects.

If so, we would need to take a look at your config and log files to determine the issue.
