What can I do if the MIB OID query is not responding?


There can be various reasons why the MIB OID query stops responding. One reason could be that the MIB itself is unresponsive. To verify that the MIB responds, use the show snmp mib walk | get MIB name | MIB OID command:


  • If the MIB responds, the communication issue exists between the SNMP master and SNMP agent. Possible reasons for this issue include network issues, an incorrect community configuration, an incorrect SNMP configuration, and so on.
  • If the MIB does not respond, enable SNMP traceoptions to log PDUs and errors. All incoming and outgoing SNMP PDUs are logged. Check the traceoptions output to see if there are any errors.

 If you continue to have problems with the MIB OID query, technical product support is available through the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC).
