Description Mario Lorenz 1999-06-04 00:36:20 UTC
I installed the SNMP-1.8 module for perl, to collect SNMP status information from a perl script. Unfortunately, the whole perl dumped core after the 2nd or 3rd query. I mailed the author of the SNMP module (email@example.com) about it, and his response was: >ucd-snmp 3.6.1 has a bug. either recompile with >ZEROLENGTH_COMMUNITY(guessing from memory) defined in >config.h or get >3.6.2 as soon as you can. > >regards, GSM I updated to 3.6.2-pre1 (in the beta directory of ucd-snmp.ucdavis.edu), and the problem went away. So I guess he was right. This also proves that the problem is neither in perl nor in SNMP-1.8 (not shipped by RedHat) Sorry for not providing more detailed information, but thats all I got. If you want my query script (which triggers the bug) email me. Mario

Could you please attach a script that exercises the problem? Thanks.

See also the changelog of ucd-snmp 3.6.2 (just announced) on http://ucd-snmp.ucdavis.edu/NEWS.txt You therefore just might want to go for the new version.

Fixed (by upgrading) in ucd-snmp-3.6.2-1. Thanks for the report.
