SNMP v3 Configuration
Enabling the SNMP background services is an essential step for configuring your device for monitoring. SNMP v3 tends to be a bit more complicated to set up than SNMP v1 & v2. The following steps can be used to set up SNMP v3 on your Linux device. Depending on your distribution, additional adjustments may be necessary.
To ensure that you have sufficient permission, you should become root or use the sudo command for the following configuration steps.
Note: As discussed in Defining Authentication Credentials, you'll need to set the SNMP v3 credentials you set for your user as device properties. To verify that the correct credentials have been set, follow the instructions in Troubleshooting SNMP.
