#985 Inconsistent data can be reported on Solaris 10U4+


Due to an interface change, there is a size mismatch between the statistics returned from the kernel and what's expected by net-snmp.

    tanders has apparently applied this patch already, though he didn't say so here. So I'm saying it and closing it :-)

    No, I didn't apply this patch yet. Instead, SVN trunk (5.5-to-be) has a different fix for this issue from 2007 (r16436). It uses SOLARIS_HAVE_RFC4293_SUPPORT instead of LEGACY_MIB_SIZE to decide whether to set req->len=1.

    5.4.x and earlier have no such fix at all.

    @apersson: What define is more appropriate? I'll make sure we use that in all branches, then.

    LEGACY_MIB is more appropriate, as it is only defined on S10U4+, which is the only time we
    need to set req->len = 1. Using SOLARIS_HAVE_RFC4293_SUPPORT would set the value on
    OpenSolaris systems (which is harmless, but still).

    SVN Rev. 17554.

    Thanks for the patch! It has been applied to the 5.2.x, 5.3.x and 5.4.x code branches and the main development tree, and will appear in future releases of the Net-SNMP package.
