I have sysedge running on two hosts for snmp. They have the same SNMP configuration in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SNMP exactly the same, but one host does not work. If I restart sysedge on the host, an snmpwalk works up to a point (at the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB) but hangs and returns a timeout after some time. After the timeout, the snmpwalk does not work unless I restart the service again (where it fails at the same point).

This is where it fails in the walk:

HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSystemInitialLoadDevice.0 = INTEGER: 0

Also, before I start the walk, sysedge is using 00 CPU and about 5,000 K Memory. After I do the walk that times it out, it climbs to ~20,000 K, then bounces between 23,000 K and 41,000 K Memory usage.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

If you do not have debugging skills, contact the vendor.

If you want to debug, use Process Monitor, Process Explorer and may be a debugger to find out what is happening.

Check also the disk I/O or if the disk is speed is fine. It could be a disk that is in a pre-fail state and that is becoming slow.

Check if you have mapped drives that are not answering.

I haven't done indepth debugging before, so I may have to find another solution. It looks like sysedge is using 250,000K Memory now, and jumping to 300,000K. I might have to kill the process – EGr Feb 14 '13 at 18:10
From the small amount of info you have, does this look like a config problem or a problem with the application itself? – EGr Feb 14 '13 at 18:19
I would expect to be a problem with the server is running on. I would start checking what is happening with the Windows server. I would try to see if I have the same issue with procmon and wmi. – Mircea Vutcovici Feb 14 '13 at 19:16
sysedge is replacing the native SNMP, or is it a SNMP subagent? – Mircea Vutcovici Feb 14 '13 at 19:17
it is a subagent – EGr Feb 14 '13 at 19:20
