New to SNMP, playing around with Cacti and PRTG. Can someone explain what these stand for to me? I've tried on Google and it hasnt returned much information relevant to this (I dont even know what the term is, Network Interfaces?)


I figured atm0 meant Asynchronous Transfer Mode 0 & wl0 meant Wireless LAN 0

Thanks :)
