abrt logs including coredump
Description of problem:
snmpd eatch too much CPU and RAM while processing ipv6IfDescr part of the tree if interface index is too large. It eats more resources as index is larger. This leads to timeout snmpwalk request, the timeout needs to be extend to get the data.
I also get core-dumps at some point, see attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set manage ifindex to be big enough, e.g. 268435448
2. start snmpd
3. issue snmpbulkwalk -t 15 localhost ipv6IfDescr
snmpbulkwalk times out and snmpd eats up system resources and coredumps
snmpd behaves nicly to system resources and snmpbulkwalk gets all the data
