      Description

      Hi, it would be great if Zabbix could take the SNMP "auth" data (be it v1, v2c, or v3) from the OS, like any textual OID if the MIBs are correctly configured (like this).

      I have the SNMP "auth" data for all my devices in $HOME/.snmp/hosts, soy I can do things like:

      $snmpwalk router1.example.com 1.3.6.1

      without specifying any particular info in the CLI beacause that info is in the file router1.example.com.conf in the $HOME/.snmp/hosts directory (or /etc/snmp/hosts).

      It could be a new Type in Items, like plain "SNMP" or "SNMP from OS" to be more specific.

      This way there would be no need to change the SNMP config in Zabbix, all the info is in one place per device.
