      Description

      there is no real documentation around snmp v3 traps in zabbix and how to set it up
      for example net-snmp at least in Centos 7 is not supporting AES 256Bit encryption only 128 in zabbix we will not see warnings about it it will just not work

      http://snmp.com/snmpv3/snmpv3_aes256.shtml
      also the configuration in snmptrapd.conf is a bit different

      createUser -e <engineid> <user> SHA <key> AES <key>
      authUser log,execute <user>
      perl do "/usr/bin/zabbix_trap_receiver.pl";
      

       
      authUser needs to have the execute option else the perl script will not be executed also the engineid is the engineid for the traps not the engineid configured on the switch.
      there is also the option to send traps or informs with informs sending an ack back to the switch
