Severity: 5-Cosmetic

Symptoms

When routing protocols ospfv2, ospfv3, bgp, rip, ripng are configured to exchange routing information, the system posts agentx-related warning messages in the syslog/zebos log files similar to the following: <date+time> warnings: <protocol> : AgentX: process_packet (<state name> state), ... <date+time> warnings: <protocol> : AgentX: requested pdu : 1

Impact

These warning messages are cosmetic and may be logged intermittently, possibly resulting in a large number of messages.

Conditions

This occurs when a BIG-IP system is configured for SNMP traps on the ZebOS routing protocols.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

Benign agentx warning messages are no longer logged for the routing protocols ospfv2, ospfv3, bgp, rip, ripng.
