Hi community!

I have a Windows host that is being monitored by snmp, I have all disk, uptime, cpu, memory and so on, but in some point of the day I get:   UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Timeout , BUT not for all services, just for a couple of them in random way.

Any idea why I am having behavior ?

I’m not sure what happens exactly in your case, but in my experience, some checks (eg. Memory) can fail because of Windows’ implementation of SNMP v2 (the bulk get/walk features, mainly). This can be worked around by selecting v1 on your host’s configuration instead.

Then you can also try increasing the SNMP timeout.

Thanks @omercier

Now it looks like to work smooth!
