If the SNMP configuration includes a long list of allowed-addresses in the configuration then it can impact SNMP performance.


Potentially slow SNMP response.


-- The SNMP daemon consults a system file to determine whether a request can be serviced. -- There is a long list of allowed addresses in the configuration.


Make the list of allowed addresses be the minimum set of your clients.

Fix Information

The daemon code is now more efficient.
