Cannot query host: ifAlias: The message size exceeded the buffer maxMsgSize of 1472

I got "Cannot query host: ifAlias: The message size exceeded the buffer maxMsgSize of 1472" while doing SNMP Interfaces Query Host?

This error is not occuring on all hosts device, only on some devices. Has anyone found this and what is the solution ? Opsview is running on Ubuntu 14.04

 

Thanks.

Can you confirm which version

Can you confirm which version of Opsview you are using?  Are you making the change in the UI and then performing a reload, or just using the 'test connection' functionality?

maxMsgSize 1472

I found several checks with that defined but when doing Query Host it seems to come from somewhere else.

So where does one change this for the "Query Host"? 

Opsview 5.0.3

Redhat 6 64-bit

Thanks

I have the same issue. I found this set in several libexec checks but nothing in a configuration for doing the "Query Host". Where is that set for the UI?

Opsview 5.0.3 (and 4.6.3) on RHEL 6

Thanks

maxMsgSize 1472

I have a host with the same issue.This host had to use a 4kio message size to communicate at all, but the interface poller is throwing the below and thusly none of the interface data is being collected.

Return code:3

Output:UNKNOWN - Error getting interface information: ifDescr: The message size exceeded the buffer maxMsgSize of 1472

Error:WARNING: Running from command line. This could change statistics for the next run from Nagios
