Description Vitezslav Novy 2009-03-24 09:10:01 UTC
begemotIfPoll timer interval is set to value 10 times higher then should be.

Timer interval is correctly counted in ticks (1/100 s) in function  mibif_reset_hc_timer (in file  contrib/bsnmp/snmp_mibII/mibII.c:375)
Then timer_start_repeat is called. This function expects ticks (1/100 s) as parameter, but is called with miliseconds.



<       if ((hc_update_timer = timer_start_repeat(ticks * 10, ticks * 10,
>       if ((hc_update_timer = timer_start_repeat(ticks, ticks,
How-To-Repeat: Start
/usr/sbin/bsnmpd -d -D events

and in debug output look at 1st parameter of poll_start_utimer.

HC polling code was submitter by glebius in 2006. Perhaps, he can tell if 10x multiplier was intentional.

A commit references this bug:

URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/342877

  Timer interval is correctly counted in ticks (1/100 s) in
  mibif_reset_hc_timer().  Multiplication by 10 is erroneous
  and is probably a blind copy and paste from next function.
