I'm not sure what changed, but I was using MRTG 2.9.4 and just upgraded to 
2.9.10.  I have a CFG file that I have been using flawlessly with 2.9.4 
that is monitoring hundreds of variables.  MRTG is running  on a PII 350 
with 256Mb RAM and ample Hard disk space running RedHat 7.0.  Since the 
upgrade, for every query sent to our AS/400 locally (I know the AS/400 
responds to SNMP queries slowly), it gets the message as follows...

SNMP Error:
no response received
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "IPADDR" [IPADDR].161)
                  community: "public"
                 request ID: 1099647252
                PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                    timeout: 2s
                    retries: 5
                    backoff: 1)
SNMPGET Problem for ifInOctets.2 ifOutOctets.2 sysUptime sysName on public at IPADDR
WARNING: Expected a number but got 
WARNING: Expected a number but got 

(Yes, the message on the bottom appears more than once)

Everything else works fine.   Even when I was using 2.9.4, there would be 
an occasional "no response received" from the AS/400, but there would not 
be that warning message.

I don't know if the timeouts for how long to wait for the SNMP replies has 
been reduced???

Anybody else having this problem???  Did you fix it?  How?
