When polling is context name used in SNMPv3 profiles?


Any CAPM version


We don't support SNMPv3 Context Names in DA.  They are there because NPC had it for other data sources that may support context names.  We do sync the context name to DA, but don't use it

Additional Information

Context Name
(SNMPv3 Only) Identifies the collection of management information that is accessible by an SNMP entity. An octet string that is necessary for providing end-to-end identification and for retrieving data from an SNMPv3 agent.

Note: The Data Aggregator does not use Context Name on the SNMPv3 profiles to communicate with the device.
