  • Why does GETBULK return less variable bindings than expected?

If GETBULK returns less (no) variable bindings than you expect it to return then check

  • the maxRepetitions parameter of the GETBULK request PDU
  • the maxSizeRequestPDU parameter of the Target
  • whether the agent has local limits (i.e., memory) that do not allow to return a bigger GETBULK response PDU. In that case, the GETBULK response will contain less variable bindings than
    nonRepeaters + maxRepetitions * repeaters
    .
  • whether the expected response PDU exceeds the MTU size of the used UDP network. In that case, the request will time out because UDP packets are usually not reassambled.
