Hello,

In my application, I am sending SNMP GET requests to multiple SNMP devices. Randomly for some of the devices, I am not getting the SNMP GET response. I looked at the wireshark capture and it contained SNMP request/response for those devices for which the SNMP response was received successfully. For the devices for which SNMP response was not received, wireshark capture does not even show any SNMP GET request.

Does anyone have any idea about why the SNMP GET request not appearing on the interface for some of the devices?

The behavior is random and the devices that failed SNMP query in first attempt may respond in another attempt.

I am seeing similar behavior with Wireshark 1.8.6 on Windows 7. I do not see the SNMP get-request but I do see the SNMP get-response. That is how I know the request was sent. I'm not using any capture filters or display filters. Any help would be appreciated.

If you don't see the GET request it was possible not sent. How do you know the request was sent?
