Task manager config snmp client.jpg

The maximum table sizes for the SNMP Client are defined here. Keeping the tables set to a range that you will actually use will improve efficiency.

The default XML configuration file is entered here. This is the file that the SNMP Client will attempt to automatically load upon first time startup. After that, settings are retained in the database, and further file activity can be managed on the Config File page for the SNMP Client.

Activity timeout is a form of watchdog. If the task manager does not see the SNMP Client task update its activity indicator within this amount of time, the task manager will restart the SNMP Client. If set to zero, the watchdog is disabled. The task manager itself is restarted by the Linux cron if it stops responding.

IMPORTANT: Do not set the activity timeout for SNMP to less than 120 seconds. While the client will update its timer much faster than that during normal operation, it will time out during startup while it waits for all of the SNMP tasks to start. Setting the activity timeout too short on the SNMP client will result in a system that can never fully start up.
