Description Peter Bieringer 2010-07-12 06:53:12 EDT
Description of problem:
while man page tells about -D TOKEN, snmptrapd only understands -D without any additional argument

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
net-snmp-5.3.2.2-9.el5_5.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

       -D TOKEN[,...]
               Turn on debugging output for the given TOKEN(s).  Try ALL for extremely verbose output.


Expected results:

      -D
   enable debug mode


Additional info:

# snmptrapd -h 2>&1 | grep '\-D'
  -D                    turn on debugging output
Comment 1 Jan Safranek 2010-07-19 07:39:12 EDT
snmptrapd does understand additional arguments of -D, but not in format which is described in man page.

Correct usage is -Dtoken, without space. I'll fix the man pages and -h output.
Comment 2 Jan Safranek 2010-07-20 03:36:34 EDT
I've fixed the documentation upstream, SVN rev. 19230.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 15:34:17 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-01-11 18:08:11 EST
This request was erroneously denied for the current release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  The error has been fixed and this
request has been re-proposed for the current release.
