Comment 1 Larkin Lowrey 2012-10-20 14:33:32 EDT
Confirmed still occurring in F17.

The bug fix should be included in the 5.7.2 release of net-snmp. This version is in the F18 testing repo. I would greatly appreciate this version being added to the F17 repo.

Comment 5 Larkin Lowrey 2012-10-23 12:53:52 EDT
This does not appear to have worked.

I'm getting the following in /var/log/messages:

snmpd[1855]: truncating integer value > 32 bits

Here're the results from snmpget:

HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageSize.31 = INTEGER: 2043037374
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageUsed.31 = INTEGER: 2796038858

The Used value should not be larger than the Size value. The correct Used is 1772751538.

I'm running:

(In reply to comment #5)

> Here're the results from snmpget:
> HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageSize.31 = INTEGER: 2043037374
> HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageUsed.31 = INTEGER: 2796038858


Just to be sure, please provide output of rpm -qa | grep net-snmp

And please start snmpd like this:
  # snmpd -f -Lo -Dfsys -Lf snmpd.log

Stimulate it using:
  # snmpwalk localhost hrStorageTable

and send me snmpd.log file and output of the snmpwalk.

With my dummy 18TB filesystem, it shows following line in the log:
fsys: Results of 32-bit conversion: size 4812611303 -> 1203152825; units 4096 -> 16384; avail 4570986620 -> 1142746655; used 32773 -> 8193

And my hrStorageTable looks ok:
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageAllocationUnits.65 = INTEGER: 16384 Bytes
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageSize.65 = INTEGER: 1203152825
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageUsed.65 = INTEGER: 8193
Comment 7 Larkin Lowrey 2012-10-24 12:06:13 EDT
I have it working now.

When I updated net-snmp yum updated everything except net-snmp-agent-libs. Once I updated that to 5.7.1-5.fc17 I got the correct values.

Thank you! This has been bugging me for months.
Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2012-12-20 10:50:01 EST
