Issue/Introduction

Polling SNMPv3 agents adds additional load to the eHealth system due to the overhead associated with encryption and authentication. This  can cause missed polls for SNMPv3 elements and a corresponding loss of data granularity in reports.

If you are polling any SNMPv3 agents, verify that your setting for the NH_STAT_POLLS_PER_SECOND environment variable does not exceed 200 (+/- depending on the power of the eHealth polling server).   This setting establishes a performance boundary of 40,000 elements polled every 5 minutes. An indication that NH_STAT_POLLS_PER_SECOND is set too high is receipt of "no response" errors, specifically from SNMPv3 agents.
