Using version 5.2.5, I am displaying a row in the
ALARM-MIB::alarmActiveTable (RFC-3877) which uses a DateAndTime type as the
2nd key. The output from net-snmp doesn't appear to decode the DateAndTime
type in either the 8 or 11 byte format correctly with the default output
options.

[tjw@typhoon net-snmp-5.2.5]$ snmptranslate -m ALARM-MIB
1.3.6.1.2.1.118.1.2.2.1.13.0.8.7.216.4.10.10.22.8. 0.2
ALARM-MIB::alarmActiveModelPointer.""."........".2

Using the -OX option:

[tjw@typhoon net-snmp-5.2.5]$ snmptranslate -OX -m ALARM-MIB
1.3.6.1.2.1.118.1.2.2.1.13.0.8.7.216.4.10.10.22.8. 0.2
ALARM-MIB::alarmActiveModelPointer[STRING: ][STRING: 2008-4-10,10:22:8.0][2]

(11 byte version of DateAndTime):

[tjw@typhoon net-snmp-5.2.5]$ snmptranslate -m ALARM-MIB
1.3.6.1.2.1.118.1.2.2.1.13.0.11.7.216.4.10.10.22.8 .0.45.2.0.2
ALARM-MIB::alarmActiveModelPointer.""."........-..".2
[tjw@typhoon net-snmp-5.2.5]$ snmptranslate -OX -m ALARM-MIB
1.3.6.1.2.1.118.1.2.2.1.13.0.11.7.216.4.10.10.22.8 .0.45.2.0.2
ALARM-MIB::alarmActiveModelPointer[STRING: ][STRING:
2008-4-10,10:22:8.0,-2:0][2]

Should the default output option work with the DateAndTime text convention
as a key?
I don't *think* my agent is generating the OID improperly although my
testers don't like the net-snmp output enough to generate a couple of bugs
against the agent. (net-snmp is the standard we test our agents against).
I searched the archives and buglists but didn't run across anything along
these lines.

Thanks,
