The following information and controls are available at Cluster Management > General Settings > SNMP Monitoring.

Enable SNMP Service
In the SNMP Service Settings, click the Enable SNMP Service check box. The SNMP service is enabled by default.
Download MIB Modules
Download the MIB file you want to use (base or trap). Follow the download process that is specific to your browser. Copy MIB files to a directory where your SNMP tool can find them, such as /usr/share/snmp/mibs/ or /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs, depending on the SNMP tool that you use. To have Net-SNMP tools read the MIBs to provide automatic name-to-OID mapping, add -m All to the command, as in the following example: snmpwalk -v2c -c public -m All <node IP> isilon.
Protocol access
Specifies the SNMP version or versions to use to allow access, as follows:
Allow SNMPv2 Access
If your protocol is SNMPv2, ensure that the Allow SNMPv2 Access check box is selected. SNMPv2 is selected by default.
SNMPv2 Read-Only Community Name
Enter the appropriate community name. The default is I$ilonpublic.
Allow SNMPv3 Access
To enable SNMPv3, click the Allow SNMPv3 Access check box.
SNMPv3 Read-Only User Name
Type the SNMPv3 security name to change the name of the user with read-only privileges. The default read-only user is general.
SNMPv3 Read-Only Password
Type the new password for the read-only user to set a new SNMPv3 authentication password. The default password is password. We recommend that you change the password to improve security. The password must contain at least eight characters and no spaces.
Confirm SNMPv3 Read-Only Password
Type the new password again to confirm it.
