Description DagB 2012-08-29 09:37:44 EDT
Description of problem:
snmptrapd can log directly to mysql now.
See:
http://www.net-snmp.org/wiki/index.php/Snmptrapd
http://fossies.org/unix/misc/net-snmp-5.7.1.tar.gz:a/net-snmp-5.7.1/README.sql

This requires the package to be built with mysql support, though.
The RHEL net-snmp package is not.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
5.5

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge net-snmp.
2. follow steps noted in Description
use this in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf
authCommunity log 1.2.3.4
sqlMaxQueue 140
sqlSaveInterval 9

3. run snmptrapd -t -f -n -Lo

  
Actual results:
Notice how snmptrapd complains about the sql-related config options

Expected results:
Complaints about missing mysql socket. (If mysql is not running)

RHEL 6 should be quite stable and adding new dependencies at this point is not welcome. Please either use embedded perl to write your traps to a file or contact  Red Hat support with request for enhancement. I'll make sure snmptrapd is compiled with mysql in next major RHEL releases.
