message reports an internal SNMP warning message.


When a LIBJSNMP_NS_LOG_WARNING event occurs, a message similar to the following is reported:

You can see these messages even on perfectly fine systems when the system boots, during restart of the snmpd process, or when a GRES event occurs. These messages will appear when snmpd is busy receiving lots of registration requests from multiple subagents. If the subagent fails to connect/register, it retries and eventually connects to snmpd.

Examine the following output to help determine the cause of this message:

Look for any related events that occurred at or just before the LIBJSNMP_NS_LOG_WARNING message in the syslog output.

Perform these steps:

  1. Follow the instructions under ‘Confirm Causes’.
  2. If this is happening at system boot-up, snmpd restart time, or GRES, these messages are expected and can be ignored.
  3. In rare occurrences the PFED daemon may log the following message after issuing the command “show pfe route ip” on a scaled setup:
    Restarting the PFED daemon will recover the problem. This should be done during a maintenance window, as it will affect transit traffic.
  4. During a maintenance window, as it will impact transit traffic, try restarting the process deamon referenced in the syslog message.
  5. If the log messages continue, open a case with your technical support representative to investigate the issue further.
