Hi, I am currently configuring SNMP V3 on my F5 LTM and want to monitor it using SolarWinds. -Currently from configuration utility i have configured a community as public (don't know if it is recommended) and default. -Then I have configured SNMP v3 agent and defined authentication and hostname and their respective passwords and send this to SolarWinds team. -I verified all the MIB files reside in /usr/share/snmp/mibs/ directory

-I don't know how to specify OID value ?
    Can anyone please help what else can i do to configure SNMP correctly and how can I get OID value ?

  • What OID are you looking for specifically? The F5's have a large number of OIDs that return data. If you from a linux box with snmpwalk installed do a walk of the F5 you can retrieve the OID numbers using the "-On" parameter. Cheers
  • I have a windows 8 JumpBox on which I RDP from my MAC and from there i am connecting to F5 ltm. I configured the LTM with OID . (notify when device goes to Standby). I used the following syntax. snmpget -v 3 -u snmp3user -a SHA -A "snmpauth" -x AES -X "snmppriv" -l authPriv . I tried to do snmpget query but getting Timeout after a while. I also configured self IP and added a route for SNMP v3
  • Yes i have firewall in between and ports are opened between source (self IP ) and Destination (SolarWinds). I tried to use snap v2 before on the same device and it was working but i don't want to use it. Just want to stick to snmp v3
  • Frank, what OID are you looking for specifically? If I translate " .", this just gives me:

         snmptranslate . 
        My snmpwalk -v 3 works well as below, if you place a proper oid: 
    config  snmpwalk -v 3 -c public -u admin -a SHA -A Snow12345678 -x AES -X Snow12345678 -l authPriv localhost . 
    F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysStatMemoryTotal.0 = Counter64: 4282384384
    config  snmptranslate . F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysStatMemoryTotal.0`text`
