Description of problem:
snmpd fails to start if you use the disk config option in
/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf to monitor disk usage. Specifically, with a line like:
disk / 10%
(or disk / 100000 )
in the config file, ucd-snmp fails to start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.ps auxw | grep snmpd
Actual Results: nothing. strace shows snmpd dying after reading the
config file. Selectively disabling options in the config file led me to
find that it was the disk option that was causing it to fail.
Expected Results: snmpd should start
I have verified this on two different machines that I upgraded to Red Hat
7.2. Both are using ext3. ucd-snmp-4.2.1-8 (from RawHide) continues to
work on another machine I have that is still running Red Hat 7.1 but is
also running ext3 (w/ kernel 2.4.7-6).
I independently came to the same conclusion and cam here to report it. If you
put any sort of "disk" directive in snmpd.conf, snmpd will fail to start.
The 4.2.2 rpms at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12694
solve the problem.
Well, i have also ran into this bug, and too bad it's on my production servers.
will try the http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12694
Recompiling the package from source RPM helped me. I was about to hunt down
the problem and it silently disappeared. Probably it was result of applying
available updates (namely glibc).
