Hello @Bochi,


The request works with one poller but doesn’t with another one. That means that either the UDP 161 connection from the poller to the Ciso device is blocked (beauce of a firewall for example) or the poller IP address is not allowed the communicate with the Cisco device (its snmp configuration).

Hello @itoussies ,

It is not a flow issue, because somtime it’s work and sometime not.

If I add option ‘--snmp-autoreduce’ in my request it’s work…
