Has anyone duplicated this ??
Or at least commented on it ??
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2003-05-14 10:52:34 EDT
It depends on your configuration. It is a long standing and know issue that if
have configured net-snmp to only display subtrees (not .1) then an snmpwalk may
timeout while the snmpd is still running and busy for about 30-40 seconds.

The only working solution is to export the whole .1 tree.

Your problem is most likely related to bug #82146, so i am marking it as a

Read ya, Phil
