Answer It is difficult to give an absolute number for the rate of SNMP polls per second since the rate depends on the following two factors: The number of variable bindings in a protocol data unit (PDU) The response time for an interface from the Packet Forwarding Engine In a normal scenario where no delay is being introduced by the Packet Forwarding Engine and there is one variable per PDU (a Get request), the response time is 130+ responses per second
