      Description

      We are currently seeing too many errors in zabbix server log file related to snmp traps file:

      26436:20160205:032913.847 End of read_traps()

      These errors are being written in a huge number and causing zabbix_server log file to get rotated too often. We saw that this is a bug that was fixed in later releases per https://support.zabbix.com/browse/ZBX-9858
      But we would like to find a solution for this without upgrading zabbix_server.

      Our Zabbix server version: 2.2.4
      Thank you.
