Having a strange problem using Ubuntu 15.10. Yesterday I had to do a reboot due to a system update, and after the reboot 2 of the MIBs I use - LM-SENSORS-MIB and UCD-DISKIO-MIB do not work in snmpwalk. I can still find the OID with snmptranslate, and it's installed in /usr/share/snmp/mibs.

snmptranslate -IR -On LM-SENSORS-MIB::lmTempSensorsValue.6

^ works to find the OID, but below does not find anything except what I typed:

snmpwalk localhost . | grep lmTemp
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSWRunParameters.28399 = STRING: "--color=auto lmTemp"

It's not seeing the OID either:

snmpwalk localhost . | grep 2021.

Verified it's installed:

ls /usr/share/snmp/mibs/LM*

Contents of /etc/default/snmp:

cat /etc/default/snmpd
# This file controls the activity of snmpd

# Don't load any MIBs by default.
# You might comment this lines once you have the MIBs downloaded.
#export MIBS=

# snmpd control (yes means start daemon).

# snmpd options (use syslog, close stdin/out/err).
SNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u root -g 0 -I -smux,mteTrigger,mteTriggerConf -p /run/snmpd.pid'

Note - I do have mibs +ALL in the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file.


I found that I couldn't list anything for LM-SENSORS-MIB until I relaxed the permissions in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf by adding the following:

rocommunity public  localhost

After restarting snmpd service snmpd restart the following commands finally worked:

snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost .  | grep 2021.
> iso. = STRING: "2021."

snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost LM-SENSORS-MIB::lmTempSensorsTable
> LM-SENSORS-MIB::lmTempSensorsIndex.7 = INTEGER: 7
> ...
