SNMP is not capable to filter a specific computer (e.g. ip), it only has information about ports. If only one computer is connected to a switch port this port is the traffic of the computer.

If you dont have such a port you have to use other technologies. Packet Sniffer and the (Net/s)Flow sensors both have the option to filter on different fields like IPs or MAC addresses.
