Opened: Apr 27, 2019

Severity: 3-Major


The SNMPD logs can grow large but are not rotated.


The /var/log space can become full.


If the SNMPD is generating lots of log entries


Use the TMSH sys log-rotate command to modify the logrotate settings to add the snmpd.log. The syntax is: tmsh modify sys log-rotate syslog-include "/var/log/snmpd.log { compress missingok notifempty postrotate killall -HUP snmpd 2>/dev/null || true endscript } " In addition, restarting snmpd restarts the log.
