performance impact of SNMP v3 vs. v1 or 2c

Discussion created by chris.luekermann on May 18, 2011

Hi,

 

a prospect is wondering which impact in monitoring (especially the sizing of the monitoring infrastructure) it has when monitoring devices via SNMP version 1 vs. 2c vs. 3.

 

Seems like other vendors actually mention that monitoring via v3 might add 20% more load on the monitoring infrastructure in stress situations as it is slower and requires more traffic. Also the load on the monitored devices would be higher.

 

Does anyone have any information or experience on this?

 

thx,

chris
