This might indicate the problem is with the device's response times.  Increase the retries and the timeout on the SNMP query via the SNMP options (I don't have the documentation to hand for cfgmaker but I think you need to add the ::::: suffix to the community at host syntax with appropriate numbers in there, can someone else help out with the values?
