in reply to synchronous or asynchronus, that is the question

The other thing that you should consider when seeking to improve timing on SNMP interactions is the manner of data that you are polling:

  • Are you unnecessarily iterating through SNMP tables or unwanted OIDs?
  • Does the device that you are monitoring supply the requisite information in separate, discrete OIDs?
  • Does the device that you are polling support SNMPv2 and in turn, GET-BULK, which is far more efficient for large set retrieval? (See RFC 1187 for details)

These are questions that perhaps might be worth considering before making changes to your processes.

 

perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001000000000'"
