Fixed In Version: net-snmp-5.5-44.el6_4.4
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
* When an AgentX subagent disconnected from the SNMP daemon (snmpd), the daemon did not properly check that there were no active requests queued in the subagent and destroyed the session. Consequently, the session was referenced by snmpd later when processing queued requests and because it was already destroyed, snmpd terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault or looped indefinitely. This update adds several checks to prevent the destruction of sessions with active requests, and snmpd no longer crashes in the described scenario.
