Severity: 3-Major


There are two db variables that allow trap suppression to be configured. They are snmp.bigiptraps.suppress.interval and snmp.bigiptraps.suppress.count. The suppression is cleared with each new trap issued so it does not successfully suppress traps when multiple traps are issued in the suppression interval.


It can appear that trap suppression is not working if multiple traps are being issued in the suppression interval.


Configuring SNMP trap suppression.


There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

The trap suppression processing has been improved to consider the full trap contents.
