Description Mario Lorenz 1999-06-03 20:36:20 EDT
I installed the SNMP-1.8 module for perl, to collect SNMP
status information from a perl script.
Unfortunately, the whole perl dumped core after the 2nd or
3rd query. I mailed the author of the SNMP module
(gmarzot@nortelnetworks.com) about it, and his response was:

>ucd-snmp 3.6.1 has a bug. either recompile with
>ZEROLENGTH_COMMUNITY(guessing from memory) defined in
>config.h or get
>3.6.2 as soon as you can.
>regards, GSM

I updated to 3.6.2-pre1 (in the beta directory of
ucd-snmp.ucdavis.edu), and the problem went away. So I guess
he was right. This also proves that the problem is neither
in perl nor in SNMP-1.8 (not shipped by RedHat)

Sorry for not providing more detailed information, but thats
all I got. If you want my query script (which triggers the
bug) email me.

Could you please attach a script that exercises the problem? Thanks.
Comment 2 Mario Lorenz 1999-06-12 17:26:59 EDT
See also the changelog of ucd-snmp 3.6.2 (just announced) on
You therefore just might want to go for the new version.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-12 19:34:59 EDT
Fixed (by upgrading) in ucd-snmp-3.6.2-1. Thanks for the report.
