A problem can be seen, where manual stop and start polling on a device is needed because the RTT Jitter Tests configured on the router shows no data anymore, and CA Performance Management stops collecting IPSLA metrics data.
Sometimes this may appear to happen after a reload/restart of the affected device, but further investigation and troubleshooting showed this is caused by sysUpTime metric value wrapping.
CA Performance Management 3.x
There are two major issues that cause this behavior.
1) The sysUpTime rollover detection didn’t work fine once hit 2^31 sysUpTime values, because CA Performance Management is using an SNMP4j OID class that was wrongly evaluating sysUpTime. This has now been fixed and changed to use ObjectID class instead, which handles it appropriately.
2) Even if CA Performance Management did detect the rollover correctly, there were still some flaws in the dynamic index detection logic which caused the agent may still be using the same entry until the IPSLA agent created a new entry with lesser sysUpTime values.
