snmpd logs 'truncating integer value > 32 bits' for sysUpTimeInstance.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Our customer encountered a problem that following message was logged heavily.
  truncating integer value > 32 bits
  • We thought this issue corresponds to the following kbase, but it was not related because the customer is using net-snmp(net-snmp- which fixed the issue in RHBA-2010:0253-1
    'snmpwalk' command produces "truncating integer value > 32 bits" error in /var/log/messages
  • Also, the customer wants to know if there are the way to stop the message even if it is for a short time. For example, restarting snmp service. The customer minds because it logs heavily. Please tell me about this, too.
  • According to the customer, the message in question was logged only when information of OID (sysUpTimeInstance) was requested.
