Issue/Introduction

Trying to discover NetSNMP agents, 

For all servers, the only supported metric families identified by the discovery are:

- Availability
- Device Polling Statistics
- Reachability

When walking with SNMPv3, the devices do respond with the interface mib correctly.

Cause

The device was using an SNMPv2 SNMP profile.

Environment

Release : 21.2

Component : IM Discovery

Resolution

Device may respond differently when queried via SNMPv2 vs SNMPv3, use an SNMPv3 profile if configured to respond to the if mib via SNMPv3 requests.
