    Hello Ben,

    what do you mean you have QFX5100 as HA cluster? QFX5100 is a datacenter Switch, not a Firewall, it cannot be configured as a cluster like SRX can.
    Do you eventually mean a Virtual Chassis?

    You can find public documentation here regarding SNMP:
    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/task/configuration/snmp-qfx-series-cli.html

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/task/configuration/snmp-configuring-junos-nm.html

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/example/snmp-community-string-configuring-junos-nm.html


    Here is an SNMPv2c code example:

    snmp {
        location "<Location>";
        contact "<String>";
        community <Community> {
            authorization read-only;
                clients {
                    <IP Prefix/Netmask>;
            }
        }
    }​

    HA cluster for qfx5100 - it VC ? if so , monitoring this box is similar to single switch. 
    for monitoring (via snmp) vc-links you should enable "virtual-chassis vcp-snmp-statistics". 
    And you can walk on jnxExSwitching MIB for interesting info

    "virtual-chassis vcp-snmp-statistics" is deprecated after JUNOS 15.1:
    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/reference/configuration-statement/vcp-snmp-statistics-edit-virtual-chassis.html

    On my QFX5100 VC I can see VCP traffic statistics without that knob. So this is not necessary to configure.
