Updated ucd-snmp packages available
Product Enhancement Advisory
Updated ucd-snmp packages fix a memory reporting problem, add dynamic
lm_sensors support, and fix an IA64 agentx bug.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a protocol used for network
management. The UCD-SNMP project includes various SNMP tools: an extensible
agent, an SNMP library, tools for requesting or setting information from
SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the
netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl mib browser.
These updated ucd-snmp packages contained in this erratum fix a problem
introduced in 4.2.5 which broke memory reporting. They also add support for
dynamic lm_sensors reporting and fix a problem with agentx on IA64.
