I have an SNMP timeout issue on a Windows 2008 server.
-Snmpwalk timesout locally. This is intermittent (10 polls work and the 11th one times out)
-This is a windows server, so I downloaded the following snmp application to do local tests. http://www.snmpsoft.com/freetools/snmpwalk.html
-I believe the default timeout for each object (oid) is 4 seconds. When I set the timeout to 20 seconds, I am able to consistently poll the server (locally) without any timeouts.
Unfortunately, our central monitoring system polls all our servers with a timeout value of 5 seconds. It is very problematic for me to change this, just to address an issue with this one server.
What I tried:
-Restarting the SNMP service
-Re-installing the SNMP service (through the windows features option)
-Rebooting the server
-Installing the Windows SNMP hotfixes that I could find. Although, none of them match the symptoms exactly.
Any insight/help would be appreciated.
