SNMPv1/v2c/v3 at your choice

SNMP Common V2Similar to SNMP Common, but provides more advanced functionality. You can use it if SNMP Common cannot collect statistics from your devices. SNMP Common uses Cisco OID portIndex to index ports when collecting statistics, therefore statistics cannot be collected on a number of devices. New SNMP Common V2 uses standard IfIndex, allowing for statistics collection on most devices. SNMP Common V2 requires IfIndex preservation between re-initializations that is performed with a specific switch command. Please, contact a manufacturer of your device for more information.SNMPv1/v2c/v3 at your choiceCisco C35xx
AristaBased on SNMP Common V2, but also can work with VLAN and manage port speed via Arista Command API. You need to enable eAPI in the switch settings.eAPI and SNMPv1/v2c/v3 at your choiceDCS-7010T-48-R
