Hi we use SNMP v3 in our organisation. How do i use this management pack with that?
Before that we used the (old comptrade) HYCU F5 Big IP MP but that was expensive and
maybe this can be an nice alternative.
I found some info (http://net-snmp.sourceforge.net/docs/README.snmpv3.html) but wasn’t manage to set it up.
actually the MP doesn’t care if you use SNMP v2 or v3 to query your F5. You just need to change the corresponding lines in F5-Discovery-snmp.ps1
Line 117 / 118:
Invoke-Expression "C:\usr\bin\snmptable.exe -v 2c -t $timeOut -c public -Cf *.* $F5BigIPHost $Oid" | Out-File -FilePath $tmpFile [string]$snmpTableRaw = Get-Content -Path $tmpFile | Out-String
Line 203 / 204:
Invoke-Expression "C:\usr\bin\snmpwalk.exe -v 2c -t $timeOut -c public $F5BigIPHost $Oid" | Out-File -FilePath $tmpFile [string]$snmpWalkRaw = Get-Content -Path $tmpFile | Out-String
Perhaps you could try to convince the F5 admin to allow snmp v2 quiries from the machine that is running the powershell scripts. You more information in the doc:
Let me know if you have further questions.
If you have ideas for extension of the management Pack or meet trouble, feel free to file an issue on github.
