Sorry for the very late response, first of all.

There is another post here asking the same basic question; how can you monitor (Install SNMP Agent) on the NSS?

Unfortunately, we can't; at least I have not been able to find a way to do this. The main reason is part of your question; "How can you set the community?", there is no way to do that. All we can do is set the traps, and let our SNMP software catch them. As for looking directly at the CPU load, memory, etc. we..err; should say, I have not been able to do this in my lab. Packet captures do show the information flowing, and traps do work; the bummer part is that we really can't be very pro-active.

I hope someone else sees this post and correct what I am saying.
