When you configure the SNMP agent for SNMP v3, the agent supports sending traps. SNMP v3 also provides stronger security than v1 or v2c, including cryptographic authentication and encryption.

About this task

In vSphere 6.0, SNMP v3 informs are not supported. The vCenter Server Appliance supports only notifications such as v1/v2c traps and v3 traps with all security levels.
