Severity: 3-Major


When the SNMP daemon experiences an error when it attempts to statfs a file then it logs an error message. If the file is not present then this error is repeatedly logged and can fill up the log file.


This can fill up the log with errors.


When an SNMP request causes the daemon to query a file on disk it is possible that a system error occurs. If the file is not present then the error is logged repeatedly.



Fix Information

The SNMP daemon has been fixed to log this error once.
