Re: Issues with SNMP, MIBS and TKMIB in Debian Squeeze (OLD STABLE Lenny works fine)

I have recently installed snmp and noticed that due to a license issue
the MIBS are deployed in a different package called snmp-mibs-downloader
that downloads and compiles the MIBs in our systems.

*Neverteless I found the following issues:*
*1. It seems to be that some MIBs Object definitions are lost:*
# snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost -m all
Undefined OBJECT-GROUP (diffServMIBMultiFieldClfrGroup): At line 2195 in
Undefined OBJECT-GROUP (diffServMultiFieldClfrNextFree): At line 2157 in

this is related to

*I saw a few bugs reports submitted because of this, but couldn't find
the solution.

Will this affect graphical reporting tools like Cacti or monitoring
tools like Nagios?*
i did not notice any problem here.

*2. TKMIB does not shows the whole SMI tree by default.*
You have to manually go to MIBS->Load MIBS and put the path to
/usr/share/mibs/ietf to be able to see them. Anoying.
sorry, i do not know about this.

*3. Even though I have the following entries in my snmp.conf file, it
does not load all the mibs modules and it is anoying to be adding "-m
all" to each command so see a human readable output:*

# egrep -v "^#|^$" /etc/snmp/snmp.conf
mibs ALL
mibdirs /usr/share/mibs/ietf:/usr/share/mibs/iana:/usr/share/mibs/netsnmp

i use "mibs +ALL" (including the plus)

# snmpwalk -c public -v 2c host system 2>/dev/null
SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: Foundry Networks EdgeIron 4802CF
SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: FOUNDRY-SN-ROOT-MIB::edgeIronType2Mib. DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (274961701) 31 days, 19:46:57.01
SNMPv2-MIB::sysContact.0 = STRING: hostmaster@ipax.at

so maybe this is related to the "+" in snmp.conf?
