Hello, F5 is not responding to snmp v2 queries because of which monitoring tool (zabbix, opennms) are not able to update the database. What could be wrong here? We are running 12.1.2.

does snmpwalk work?

e.g.

[root@ve13a:Active:In Sync] config # snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysSystemUptime.0
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysSystemUptime.0 = Timeticks: (178965400) 20 days, 17:07:34.00

It is resolved now. My public community was not configured correctly. It was using the format 'IPv4 public : default :' while the correct format is: 'IPv4 public : default'.

Thanks everyone for your help :)
