We ran into an issue with an SNMP device that has been switch to SNMP Shaping/Rate shaping, due to this change the device is now polling significantly slower up 20x times slower. Unfortunately, this policy will be applied across all devices at the customer, Is there any way we can combat the performance issue due to SNMP Shaping mode?. The driver currently uses a blend of native SNMP polling and Qaction SNMP polling.
the picture shows the configuration of the device
Note we have also collected Wireshark capture for a device with the mode enabled and one with the mode disabled if this is needed to analyze further.
I'm not an expert, but when traffic shaping is applied (I assume this is because the IP comms go across a satellite link), then there is nothing much that you can do about that from a DataMiner perspective. Note sure, but pps probably stands for packets per second? If so, the policy limits the number of SNMP packets that can be send across per second. And then of course it is only logic that everything will slow down from a DataMiner perspective.
