SunNet manager and TOOBIG

SunNet manager and TOOBIG

Post by Old Wo » Tue, 22 Jul 1997 04:00:00



We have an agent in an old (over 10 years) piece of hardware.  Due to
memory constraints, it can only handle requests for 11 or less
variables.  If it recieves a request for more than 11 variables it
returns a TOOBIG response.
SunNet Manager eventually times out, telling us that it recieved an
incomplete response.
Using TCPDump, the sequence appears to be:
REQUEST
TOOBIG RESPONSE
REQUEST (same variables)
TOOBIG RESPONSE
etc
Until SNM gets bored.

Does anyone have any idea how this can be resolved.  These long, and
unresolved, timeouts are a problem.
TCPdump sees nothing wrong with the TOOBIG response, but SunNet
Manager doesn't seem to like it.

Any help is appreciated.
