I have a question about this from the NOTES:
The latest TwistedSNMP version (0.3.13) contains a bug that manifests in
retrieval operations. Timeouts and retries aren't handled properly, and
may cause slow or otherwise busy devices to be bombarded with requests from
NAV. The `contrib/patches` directory contains a patch for TwistedSNMP that
solves this problem. The patch has been submitted upstream, but not yet
accepted into a new release. Alternatively, you can install `pynetsnmp` for
I think I am running into the Twisted SNMP timeout issues talked about
here. So my question is this: When it says, "Alternatively, you can
install pynetsnmp for improved performance" does that mean that instead of
patching TwistedSNMP, i can just do an apt-get install pynetsnmp and then I
don't have to worry about the Twisted SNMP library's problems?
If so, do I have to uninstall twisted SNMP?
If I still have to patch Twisted, then what is the best way for me to go
from using the standard debian packaged TwistedSNMP to using the patched
one I build from scratch? I don't want to be stuck where I have both
installed, but it is still using the old version.
Thanks in advance,
