To open monitoring, click Networking -> Monitoring. All the communication between the server and MikroBill goes through the SNMP protocol. Current version supports SMTP 1. and 2. Following examples show how to monitore a MikroTik based router.
First, allow the SNMP communication in router settings. To do so on MikroTik routers, click IP SNMP:

Second, input the device to MikroBill. There are 2 manners how to do it: All the routers being add into the file Routers can also be add into monitoring section. It is necessary to set the value SNMP monitoring to YES and to set a password for communication between the server and router into the SNMP community.
Another option is to add the device right into the monitoring section. See the following figure:

Cells to be set:

Name - screen name of the device
Parent - if there is any, should be put here
Producer - MikroTik or a different producer
Model - type of added device
IP address - IP address where the SNMP requests will be sent
SNMP Community - password for communication with the device (default is public)
Address - physical address of the device
Type - is the device Router, Switch, or Server? Necessary for further filtration and sorting
Location - place where the device has been located
Active - activation of SNMP monitoring for current device
Send notifications - should MikroBill send e-mails to the administrator if anything went wrong?

When a device is added, can be seen in the list and has been marked as Online, Warning, or Error. Online means the device is fully operational and is responding. Warning means MikroBill is unable to connect with the device over the SNMP. Error means MikroBill is unable to connect and furthemore, the device is also a parent for another routers and switches:

To review the structure of monitored network, click the main router which is also main parent. On the following figure there are 3 connected devices to the router, while one of them (RB Malatova Switch) hosts even more components:

Besides monitoring functions and notices, the MRTG is also connected to the charts. Due to the templates, it is possible to set the MRTG monitoring in almost automatical mode. See the following figure how to set up the MRTG MikroTik basic parameters monitoring. First, edit the details, click the MRTG and select Get MRTG config:

Second, define the parameter to set into the system. In this example the CPU/memory usage interface:

MikroBill allows SNMP parameters customization, which the MRTG renders. See the following figure (volt measuring and chart rendering):
