Create an external SNMPv3 monitor
We need to implement a specific combination of monitors for our backend servers: One https check and one SNMPv3 monitor.
Sad thing is that F5 predefined SNMP monitors do not support SNMPv3 so we have been conidering the option to use an external monitor in the form of bash script, performing the SNMPv3 query and based on the response we shall mark the backend as UP or DOWN...
Unfortunately I was not able to find much info on this topic.. Has anyone of you ever had the need to use SNMPv3 for monitoring pool members?
Do this in two stages:
- Use snmpget on the BIG-IP to perform the snmpv3 get that you want to perform, and check the response
- Modify the example external monitors to perform the snmp get as per step 1
