enhancement request SNMP



Dear Support,

I would really be interested to enhance the SNMP Trap functionality a bit of PRTG.

Currently the traps are sent in v1 and all are coming from the same OID :

Most systems using SNMP are using different OID depending on the message / event category.

Example of enhancement : = State msg / 32446.1.1.3 Object state = Volume msg / 32446.1.2.3 Object state = Speed msg / 32446.1.3.3 Object state


Then send it in v2 (v1 is almost obsolete)

I don't think this would generate a massive development and it would be really better to catch up traps.

I hope this could be addressed,

Thank you for your feedback,

I'm sorry there are not such plans in the moment.

Best regards.
