Hi there,

Running mrtg 2.8.12 from a debian 2.2 linux box. Everything has been working
fine until a couple of weeks ago when we moved the installation (of mrtg) to
a new box.

Since then i've been getting errors such as the following:

SNMP Error:
no response received
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "" [].161
                  community: "public"
                 request ID: 1220029722
                PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                    timeout: 2s
                    retries: 5
                    backoff: 1)
SNMPGET Problem for ifInOctets.7 ifOutOctets.7 sysUptime sysName ifDescr.7
on public at
SNMPGET: Failed to reach target: "7:public at". I tried multiple
times! public at

Even though that switch is never offline. (the errors come up at various
times on various switches we have throughout the network, it doens't happen
on any router or access server interface).

Any clues?
