Hello,

  1. Are SNMPv3 Traps supported now beginning from v15?
  2. . If not, is it planned in next release?
  3. If yes, is the maintanance of SNMP-engine-id a manual process or will this be rtrieved automativly, e.g. poller cache?
  4. If the engine-id of a target changes maybe due to RMA, what must be done in PRTG to decrypt the traps of the target identified by IP/name (same IP address, changed engine-id)?
  5. BTW: For active SNMPv3 polling sensors, how will it be handeled in PRTG, if the SNMPv3 targets are L3-clusters polled at the VIP (virtual IP) in place of their RIP (real IP addresses) for service not box oriented metrics. After member change the engine id will also change at same VIP the sensor measures nthis target. I know must monitoring systems wont be able to continue with SNMPv3 monitoring after SNMPv3-cluster-mamber change without rebooting the monitoring daaemon to renew the IP to engine-id mapping.

thx for answers, Steffen

Hello,

SNMP v3 Traps are not supported and not planned. Sorry.

As to point 5, I'm afraid we have no experiences with such scenarios ourselves, as we do not have such a device here in our networks, nor do we have any feedback from other users. I expect a reboot to be necessary as well though.

Hi, just picking up this posting depending on customers request to replace NimSoft with PRTG, but: he needs SNMP v3 Trap Receiver.

Customer is "Millions of €€€ Business" and has replaced within last month other Solutions, e.g. HPOV/Nagios/etc. with PRTG. Now to replace NimSoft. We know that v3 Trap Receiver is like a killer Feature in customers industrial sector, because most Solutions doesn´t Support this.

So pleae "Go for it!" and let´s grow together ;-)

Thanks a lot in advance, J.
