Secondary failing to respond to SNMP poll

Unanswered Question
Oct 14th, 2008

FWSM secondary seems to stop responding to snmp polls during replication. Is this expected behavior or symptomatic of somthing else?

I have this problem too.

If the snmp requests are reaching the FW and it's not responding, you should see syslogs.

There are reasons why it may not respond, mostly having to do with resource

utilization. Obviously, that should not normally be a problem on the standby FW.

If you don't already see these, you may have to enable standby logging.

If that still doesn't point you in the right direction, then you will need to collect a sniffer trace on the same subnet as the secondary FW along with accompanying syslogs from the same time period
