Strange SNMP agentx messages in message log on VC members

Hi everyone,

Recently I found that I have some strange for me  messages in message log on VC members.

I have EX4200  VC  with  5 members and ver. 10.0S10.1

On member 4 I have:

Nov 28 12:45:44 SW1 vccp[770]: LIBESPTASK_SNMP_CONN_RETRY: snmp_task_socket_connect: reattempting connection to SNMP agent (/var/run/snmpd_agentx): Connection refused
Nov 28 12:45:44 SW1 vccp[770]: task_connect: task SNMP Subagent./var/run/snmpd_agentx addr /var/run/snmpd_agentx: Connection refused

It repeats every 15 sec

 

On members 3 and 2:

Nov 28 12:33:03 SW1 vccp[819]: task_connect: task SNMP Subagent./var/run/snmpd_agentx addr /var/run/snmpd_agentx: No such file or directory
Nov 28 12:33:33 SW1 last message repeated 2 times
Nov 28 12:35:33 SW1 last message repeated 8 times
Nov 28 12:45:33 SW1 last message repeated 40 times
Nov 28 12:55:33 SW1 last message repeated 40 times
Nov 28 13:05:33 SW1 last message repeated 40 times
Nov 28 13:15:33 SW1 last message repeated 40 times
Nov 28 13:25:33 SW1 last message repeated 40 times

 

Members 0 and 1 don't have these messages.

 

I thought it is related to SNMP service and I deactivated it :



SW1# show snmp
##
## inactive: snmp
##
community mine {
authorization read-only;
clients {
x.x.x.x/32;
0.0.0.0/0 restrict;
}
}

 

But it didn't help.

 

Does anyone know what those messages are about and how to fix it?

Does it have any impact on perfomance?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Strange SNMP agentx messages in message log on VC members

provide the output of the below commands:

show virtual-chassis status

show virtual-chassis vc-port

 

These messages are not related to the configuration of the SNMP hierarchy but are used by the VC members for sending some internal snmp info (not sure what the information is used for)

 

provide me the above output and I'll let you a plan of action

Re: Strange SNMP agentx messages in message log on VC members

[ Edited ]

What was the outcome of this?  I, too, am now experiencing this on our VC.  I can reveal that the influencing factor of this error was loss of power on the first 3 members of the VC (Master, Backup and FPC-2 which now has the error)

 

Also, as per vadmin@'s post, all line cards are present, all trunks are up etc etc.  The error lives on all line cards, but the master and backup units are ok.

Re: Strange SNMP agentx messages in message log on VC members

Sorry for the late resposne Vadim. These messages are definitely non-harmless. Please open a case with JTAC to get the exact information. Please update this post as well after getting the resolution.

Rahul
