I have an application that is sending SNMP traps. Sometimes the traps are recieved by Orion. Sometimes they are not. I have narrowed
the issue to the timestamp field in wireshark. for example If the timestamp field is (base10) 8625822 encoded as 0x[43 04 84 8e bd 1e] Orion recives the trap.
Orion Displays "sysUpTime=2223947038" in this case
If the timestamp field is (base10) 1321391034 encoded as 0x[43 05 84 f6 8b a7 3a], I do not see the trap. This is reproducable.
Both senders and recievers are Windows boxes.
Do you have any ideas why this is the case?
A product called TrapReciever can recieve and display both traps.
Wireshark does not think either packet is mallformed.
Thanks in advance for your time
This was fixed in a later version of Orion. The sender was time incorrectly as well.
