SNMP requirements

SNMP privacy protocol support

The aes256 and aes256c SNMPv3 privacy protocol options only support custom SNMP Polling Checks and SNMP Traps when run or received on RHEL 8 or OL 8 systems. This means that any Opsview Hosts using these pieces of functionality must be monitored by Monitoring Clusters made up entirely of RHEL 8 or OL 8 Collectors.


This assumes the default installation of Net-SNMP for each listed operating system. If this has been changed, support may vary.

The Network Topology feature does not currently support these privacy protocols.

For all supported protocols, see Supported SNMPv3 Protocols.
