ISSUE: "SnmpRequest::loopDetected returning true" message seen in the VNM.OUT file on Spectrum 10.1

 

CAUSE: The message is from debugging that was enabled during the development process but not removed. The message indicates Spectrum detected an snmp loop while reading a table. When an snmp loop is detected, Spectrum will automatically stop reading the table. This is seen mostly during the discovery process. 

 

RESOLUTION: The messages are benign and can be ignored. There are no plans to provide a patch to suppress these messages in Spectrum  10.1 since they are benign. The next release of Spectrum will suppress these messages.
