Last SNMPv3 question

How does one know if SNMPv3 is truly working . I ask because I just copied SNMPv3 profile from a known system but dont have actual auth/priv credentials to do snmpwalk since profile is encrpted in terms of password. Are there logs I can check particularly for SNMPv3? Are there logs that I can look that wil even confirm that the auth credential I copied over are even valid? I know I can do tcpdump and I can see the snmpv2 working and the traps as well but with SNMPv3 the data is all encrypted so can't tell if it works or not other than I see SNMPv3 profile name
In tcpdump but other data is all binary .
Like what you see?
