  1. Hi Greg,

    I don’t think Observium supports SNMP traps right now, only polling. I installed it a few months ago so not sure if they implemented it by now.


  2. Hi Sims,

    Once you have access through SNMP, you will have access to the entire Management Information Base (MIB).

    With views, it’s possible to limit this to certain (sub)trees.

    Cisco has some good examples here:


    Like this one:

    snmp-server view myview mib-2 included
    snmp-server view myview atEntry excluded
    snmp-server view myview cisco included

    It includes access to the MIB-II and Cisco MIB but denies access to the atEntry MIB.

  3. Hi Hussam,

    Glad to hear you like it.

    If you want to play around with Observium, it’s best to use the tutorial that you can find on the Observium website:


    Once you have Observium up and running, the only thing you need to do is to use the cloud icon in GNS3 to connect a physical network card (or a virtual one if you use vmware) to your GNS3 routers:

    This is an older video but it’s probably still 99% the same on the latest GNS3 version.


  4. How to check below settings? Is there any way to check this configuration?

    R1(config)#snmp-server user MYUSER MYGROUP v3 auth md5 MYPASS123 priv aes 128 MYKEY123

    I am not getting this configuration on “show run” all the time but SNMP works always fine.


  5. Need to confirm what is the difference between auth and priv in snmp v3.

    If i configure below then what is the difference between them,

    snmp-server group SBG v3 auth read ABC
    snmp-server group SBG V3 priv read ABC.
