Issue/Introduction

Changing the default SNMP timeouts and retries can be done through a REST client

CAPM attempts to poll devices during each poll cycle and sometimes, it gets a timeout. These timeouts may be due to the device not being able to respond in the given timeframe of the set timeout period.
 

Environment

CAPM 3.x

Resolution


To change the SNMP profiles, perform a HTTP PUT to; 
http://<DataAggregator>:8581/rest/profiles/<profile_number>

The <profile_number> is a variable and can be obtained from;

http://<DataAggregator>:8581/rest/profiles/snmpv1/

For example:

<CommunicationProfile version="1.0.0">
        <CommunicationFailurePolicy version="1.0.0">
                <Timeout>6000</Timeout>
                <Retries>2</Retries>
         </CommunicationFailurePolicy>
</CommunicationProfile>
