Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431519
exec does not cache
Last modified: 2009-01-20 17:07:13 EST
Description of problem:
Documentation of 'exec' statement in snmpd.conf file says, that is should cache
results for 30 seconds. This is not true since net-snmp-5.1.
'exec' has been deprecated in favor of 'extend' statement, which caches. See
for appropriate upstream bug and discussion.
We should fix the man page and explicitly state, that 'exec' results are not
cached (which is already done in RHEL4, bug #172984).
