SNMP.EXE is hogging memory and CPU

I am running HP SIM 4.2 with SP2 Build C.04.02.00.02.

I am having problems with certain servers and the process snmp.exe which is hogging CPU and memory which is causing Applications to go Very Slow.

I have had to stop and disable the service as a result which is not ideal.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Could it be a conflict with a Microsoft Patch?

regards

There are 2 servers affected and interestingly they are both HP Netservers running TopTools Version agent version 5.5

Peter,
I have seen this on HP Netservers as well running the Toptool Agents, 5.5. What I did was uninstall snmp and then reinstall and that worked on several occasions. Depending on what type of monitoring you need, you could just use WMI, but snmp is best.

cheers,

I have three servers with the same problem. However SNMP CPU utilization goes to 92%. All three servers have the 5.5 web agents. My servers with this issue are 2000 SP4.
