snmpd version: 5.4.1~dfsg-12 (from Debian 5.0.9)
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Kernel: Linux 2.6.26-2-686 (SMP w/3 CPU cores)
I have set up an inform-sink in the snmpd config file.
Querying SNMP-TARGET-MIB::snmpTargetAddrTimeout shows, that the timeout is
set to 1000 (which is the default value in net-SNMP).
SNMP-TARGET-MIB::snmpTargetAddrTimeout is of type TimeInterval, which is
defined as a period of time measured in 0.01 seconds (see
I am assuming, that informs will be re-sent (if not acknowledged) every
10 seconds (1000*0.01 seconds = 10 seconds)
But in fact, the retry interval, which I observed was 1 second (instead
of the expected 10 seconds)
This means, that in this case, TimeInterval in interpreted as 0.001
seconds instead of 0.01 seconds.
Either the documentation on TimeInterval is wrong, or
snmpTargetAddrTimeout has an incorrect Datatype assigned or
snmpTargetAddrTimeout is implemented incorrectly
