Fixed In Version: net-snmp-5.7.2-25.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
SNMP response is no longer timed out Previously, all the Simple Network Management Protocol version 1 (SNMPv1) and SNMPv2c responses that followed an SNMPv3 message were checked against the last recorded SNMPv3 "max message size" property. As a consequence, an SNMPv3 request with a small "max message size" could lead to SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c bulk requests timing out. With this update, the session maximum message size is checked only for SNMPv3 requests, and the SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c response is no longer timed out.

Can we get a little more detail on this issue?

Note: significant work on too big responses has been done and will be in 5.8.

Comment 3 Jan Safranek 2016-04-07 11:27:51 UTC
Robert, it's a request to port this back to RHEL: https://sourceforge.net/p/net-snmp/bugs/2482/. Bugzilla is unnecessarily secretive here.
