SNMP Installed updates bug?

So this is kind of strange. Part of the svnUpdatesInfo tree doesn't populate until you walk the entire tree when snmpd first starts.

#snmpd auto restarts btw

[Expert@MDS1:0]# pkill snmpd 


[Expert@MDS1:0]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1 svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

[Expert@MDS1:0]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1 svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

[Expert@MDS1:0]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1 svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

# output is just throwing away the full table walk output to show now 10.1.5 now works.

[Expert@MDS1:0]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1 svnUpdatesInfo > /dev/null

[Expert@MDS1:0]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public 127.0.0.1 svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5.1.0 = STRING: "Installed"
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5.2.0 = STRING: "Installed"
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5.3.0 = STRING: "Available for Download"
CHECKPOINT-MIB::svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5.4.0 = STRING: "Available for Download"

if I now kill snmpd walking anything from svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5 breaks again until i walk svnUpdatesInfo

I think I found the problem. After I put snmpd in debug all mode I stumbled across this.

handler:calling: calling handler old_api for mode GET
trace: netsnmp_old_api_helper(): helpers/old_api.c, 370:
old_api: evil_client: checkpoint
trace: netsnmp_call_handler(): agent_handler.c, 549:
handler:returned: handler old_api returned 0

 

So maybe this just needs to be converted to good client. Its like that Simpson's episode where the krusty doll was switched to evil.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I managed to get it to work once, on one gateway, but now my SNMP monitoring tool is telling me that the OID isn't supported. I would love to get this working in order to easily keep track of updates installed on all of our gateways.

I have a ticket open with checkpoint. They've replicated the issue just waiting for them to get back to me.

The band aid for now is to just do a full walk of svnUpdatesInfo. Maybe schedule the walk however often your comfortable with? After you walk svnUpdatesInfo  svnUpdatesInfo.10.1.5 should populate.
