Type: Incident report
Affects Version/s: 4.0.9
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Server (S)
Issue Description: We are deploying a new tool for monitoring called Zabbix, when we deploy Zabbix server to monitor our network devices using SNMP v3 we get timeout getting data from the devices as seen in below logs:
As a result of these timeouts, we are unable to populate proper graphs with accurate data.
We are using SNMP v3 with AuthPriv set up.
When we change to SNMP v 2c or SNMP v3 with AuthNOpriv we do not encounter this issue.
We have increased the zabbix timeout in server.conf to maximum allowed value of 30 seconds. However, the issue still persists.
The device happens with various vendors including CISCO and Checkpoint.
We need a fix as this is as it is holding deployment and it seems like a bug or limitation at Zabbix code level.
