Settings Guidelines
SNMPv1/v2  

Name

Name of the SNMP community to which the FortiADC system and at least one SNMP manager belongs, such as management.

You must configure the FortiADC system to belong to at least one SNMP community so that community’s SNMP managers can query system information.

You can add up to three SNMP communities. Each community can have a different configuration for queries and traps.

You can also add the IP addresses of up to eight SNMP managers to each community to which IP addresses are permitted to query the FortiADC system.

SNMP v1 Status

Select to enable the SNMP v1 configuration.

SNMP v1 Port

Enter the port number on which the system listens for SNMP v1 queries from the SNMP managers in this community. The default is 161.

SNMP v2 Status

Select to enable the SNMP v2 configuration.

SNMP v2 Port

Enter the port number on which the system listens for SNMP v2 queries from the SNMP managers in this community. The default is 161.
Host  

IP Address

Enter the subnet address for the SNMP manager to be permitted to query the FortiADC system. SNMP managers have read-only access. You can add up to 8 SNMP managers to each community. To allow any IP address using this SNMP community name to query the FortiADC system, enter 0.0.0.0/0. For security best practice reasons, however, this is not recommended.

Test both traps and queries (assuming you have enabled both). Traps and queries typically occur on different port numbers, and therefore verifying one does not necessarily verify that the other is also functional.

To test queries, from your SNMP manager, query the FortiADC appliance.

To test traps, cause one of the events that should trigger a trap.
