Discovery timeouts on a 5k service device

Hi,

I have a cisco xr device with more than 5k Services. I get problems with timeouts during discovery. Is there a good way to go on with so many services on one device?

Hi,

That´s quite a number.
At least what I described here helped us with our CISCO stacks.
I know also from past experience that some CISCO Switches respond very slow after fetching consecutive data. That´s related to IOS Version and model.
There are some blogs from Alexander WILMS describing best practice:

Just as an idea, maybe with help of the rule “SNMPv3 contexts to use in requests” you can distribute the different services over different host. Will not help if almost all services using the same check.

Beside that there is a rule “Fetch intervals for SNMP sections” to cover situations where fetching takes too long.

Thanks for the info about the snmpv3 contexts … I have a look if I can do a separation.
