Thread-topic: [NV-L] snmpCollect vs nvcollectord

A question to the all-knowing and wise NetViewers out there…


I’m about to install NV 7.1.5 (not an upgrade) in our dev environment, and am trying to decide whether to go with the snmpCollect (snmpv1) daemon or the nvcollectord (snmpv1/v2) daemon.  As you probably already know, the latter would involve installing DB2.


We do have v2 devices, but won’t they respond to a v1 request?  Is the only reason to go with v2 for the Counter64 capability?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom and input!
