Hi experts,

I need assistance on how I can configure snmp v2 and snmp v3 on Cisco switches. I also want to know how to list all the traps that are suppose to be monitor.

I am new in network management and would be helpful if I can get some guidance.

Thanks

To configure Snmp V2 its simply in global config  (see Akinsd comment for V3)

snmp-server community <password> RO

you can find the Cisco MIB files for your device to tell you what values can be monitored along with the standard ones.

Traps are sent depending on how the loging is set up.

using the "logging trap critical" for example will send all critical logs to the snmp trap server.
