    Description

      I'm new to Zabbix, but my first impression is that you do a very good job. Bulk processing is a great feature !

       

      Steps to reproduce:

      Difficult to reproduce : I'm polling a Cisco device with "Use bulk requests" configured and every hour I got a log message on my Cisco device like this one :

      2021 Aug 3 01:00:16 switch %SNMPD-3-ERROR: SNMP log error : SNMP Operation (GET) failed. Reason:1 reqId (904207711) errno (2) error index (0)

      It seems to be related to the bulk processing mecanism which try to determine the maximum SNMP items Zabbix can retreive in one SNMP request for a device.

      For my device, it seems that max_succeed=59 works most part of the time but every hour for a specific get-resquest, related to network discovry rule, it fails.

      Result:
      Cisco device's log file spammed every hour with a log message like :

      2021 Aug 3 01:00:16 switch %SNMPD-3-ERROR: SNMP log error : SNMP Operation (GET) failed. Reason:1 reqId (904207711) errno (2) error index (0)

      Expected:
      I don't understand when "max_succeed" is calculated but it should not oscillating between two values. Some margin/historical data should prevent such oscillation.
