SNMP v2c failed on VSAT link

Hi,

I am trying to setup SNMP traffic for my remote site via VSAT link.
I had simulated the SNMP traffic in shore network and found no problem on the device UID.
I also verified with provider there is no port blocking from their side.
The only difference I can from setup was the latency to remote which is around 800ms average.

Can you help to verify if this was related to latency or something else, will the SNMP timeout probably can resolved. Tried to modify the timeout but still failed.

To troubleshoot the SNMP communication You may want to download our latest SNMP Tester, ideally run it on the PRTG Host (or host of the Remote Probe), and perform the "Read Device Uptime" test against the target device, it will allow you to easily test different credential combinations to confirm the communication.

You can also increase the timeout in the SNMP Tester Tool to see if it makes a difference.

Hi Support,

I was able to simulate and test SNMP using SNMP tester:

As per below test:

  1. st test to Public IP remote site where latency over 600ms, shows no response
  2. nd test to my Public domain with normal internet latency and it is working fine, therefore port forwarding from my FW is working fine.
  3. rd test to Private IP remote with VPN tunnel and latency over 600ms, it is working fine, therefore seems latency is not the problem.

I had check with the remote site service provider and they confirmed there was no port blocking from their side. Any idea where could be the problem? Thank you

Hello there,
than you for your reply and tests.

Based on the timings in your log, you've used a timeout of 60 seconds, but still got no response, correct?

Essentially, the latency not be the major issue here. The second issue could be QOS on the intermediate devices or even the UDP nature of SNMP. Please keep in mind, that as SNMP is UDP based there is no guarantee that it will indeed arrive at the target device. Essentially, there may be equipment along the route to this destination that will silently drop the SNMP packets in favor of forwarding "more important" traffic.

Performing a wireshark capture on UDP 161 and repeating the 1st test may show you more details. For example, if you're getting an ICMP reply with an error code for the SNMP query.

Best Regards,
Luciano Lingnau [Paessler Support]
