Zabbix 2 SNMPv3 device template

Zabbix comes with predefined SNMP Device Template, that is configured to access devices with SNMP version 2.
Here is modified version of 3 Zabbix’s templates for use with SNMPv3.

Zabbix SNMP v3 Template

It will add 7 new templates:

Template SNMPv3 Device
Template SNMPv3 Generic

Download: zbx_SNMPv3_template.xml

To add this new template to your Zabbix, press “Import” button on templates page and select the xml file.

Template uses following macroses:

These macros have to be defined on hosts page:

Configuration – Hosts – <host using SNMP v3> – Macros – Add

  1. This whole template needs work. It does not do as advertised. I also use Cacti and Nagios all of whom can poll and graph via a clients snmpv3 configuration. This one simply does not.
