Issue/Introduction



In the interface_traffic probe, in the SNMPv3 setting, what is the cryptography if SHA is chosen in the "Auth" field .Is it SHA or SHA-1 ?
What is the encryption if AES is chosen in "Priv. Protocol" field? Is it AES or AES 128 or AES 256 

Environment

Release:
Component: UIMINT

Resolution

interface_traffic probe uses SHA / AES-128 

Note: interface_traffic is currently unsupported probe

http://support.nimsoft.com/Default.aspx?center=felles/archive&state=unsupported  

There are no plans to add support for AES256 to the interface_traffic probe as this is EOS and the recommendation is to use the snmpcollector probe

Additional Information

Interface_traffic  - This probe is no longer supported as of October 1, 2017. This probe is replaced by the snmpcollector probe.
