It seems the subagent is taking long time to respond for some of the get
requests given by SNMPD. Hence SNMPD was returning error message.
Can you try out with some big value of agentxTimeout (say 10 seconds) in
snmpd.conf file ..? Also, can you try snmpget by specifying zero retries
and some timeout value.=20

For eg,
snmpget -v2c -c public -r 0 -t 10 localhost

Seems like I was not registered completely before posting - heres a
repost -=20

Hi,
I am using net-snmp 5.3.1. I have implemented sub-agent talking to snmpd
daemon (master agent) via agentX protocol.

At times, some parameters return an error message indicating an error in
the packet. At other times the same parameter returns the correct
value. I executed a small test with the snmpget command running in a
loop for the same parameter with a 1 second delay between each requests.
One out of every ten or so requests received this error message. Also,
this behaviour is seen for any parameter. This causes a break in the
snmpwalk command, due to which a single walk command has not been able
to run through to completion.

Also, seen at times, is a timeout message instead of the error message.


I am unable to determine if it is a problem in my configuration or with
the snmp Agent.

Thank and Regards,
Anjali
