UDT timeout on Catalyst 9k switches

I have had this issue for over a year now

UDT never populates any information for devices connected on 9300 switches, on Fuji (16.9.x) or above - I have approximately 80 units behaving exactly the same way

Earlier versions were fine

Tried many different versions of firmware (currently on 16.9.5, but behaviour is the same in Gibraltar 16.12.x)

This problem is getting worse as we swap EOL switches out for 9300 - around 10-15% of our estate has no UDT information

Solarwinds blame Cisco - Cisco blame Solarwinds.

Using UDT Compatibility Checker - vmMembershipSummaryTable returns all the correct VLANs, 

However, it then receives a 'Not Supported' response when querying the 'dot1TpFdbTable' and therefore just times out on when querying all the dot1d tables - suggesting it is a Cisco problem.

But getting them to acknowledge it is painful

Anyone else having issues? I cant be the only person in the world using 9300 switches and UDT?

  • Add my organization to this list as well.  We are moving from Cisco 2960s  &  2960x switches to the Cisco 9200R with CAT9k_Lite_IOSXE 17.5.3 and the UDT information is disappearing from our landscape more and more each day.  This is very frustrating since for many many years this information has been readily available and suddenly it's not....

     

  • We ran into this same issue as well, we resolved it by moving to SNMPv3 for layer 2/3 polling and filter out the old purpose-use VLANs that come with a Cisco switch (1002-1005) which was causing a timeout for the polling on the backend.  I have it working on 17.6.4, havent tried 17.6.5 yet

    no snmp-server system-shutdown
    no snmp-server trap-timeout 180

    snmp-server packetsize 1400
    snmp-server queue-length 20

    snmp-server ifindex persist

    ip access-list standard SNMP

     10 permit <SNMPSERVERIP>
