Description Joel Matuseski 2007-05-18 13:58:26 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait until UCD-SNMP-MIB::ssCpuRawIdle.0 = Counter32: 4294967295
Actual results:
Counter gets stuck at 4294967295

Expected results:
Counter should wrap over to zero

Additional info:
This is handled by net-snmp's offical patch located at

I checked the source RPM tarball and patches for the version listed and vmstat.c
shows the pre-patched version at net-snmp's sourceforge link above. 

The counter sticking throws off our monitoring and instrumentation for the
servers. A reboot is the only current fix.
