Well, that obviously depends on _what_ you are checking with SNMP :)

As already mentioned before - it's up to you to figure out what's normal
for that snmp query. SNMP can query the world and a half different things.
I use a lot of SNMP to check temperature and humidity in our datacenters.
Obviously I cannot use the same threshholds for them, as humidity can
raise to 50-60 and temperature really should not go that high ;)
