Symptoms

The hbInterval determines the amount of time the snmpd daemon can wait for a response. Software versions 11.2.x use an hbInterval of 60 sec. Software versions 11.3.0 and later use an hbInterval of 300 sec.

Impact

After upgrade, the hbInterval is still set to 60 sec and not set to 300 sec. An snmpd core is created.

Conditions

When upgrading from version 11.2.x to version 11.3.0 or later.

Workaround

Edit bigipTrafficMgmt.conf and set hbInterval value to 300 using the following procedure: 1. Run the command: bigstart stop snmpd. 2. Change the value of hbInterval in /config/snmp/bigipTrafficMgmt.conf and save the file. 3. Run the command: bigstart start snmpd.

Fix Information

When upgrading from a release that did not have the hbInterval set to 300, the new release now has hbInterval set to 300.
