Hi all,


May I have a question regarding SNMP timeout and retries setting in interface_traffic, cisco_monitor, etc.? Do we know if SNMP timeout value is doubled for every retry?


For example:


Timeout: 1 seconds

Retries: 5


1st retry - 1 seconds, 2nd retry - 2 seconds, 3rd retry - 4 seconds, 4th retry - 8 seconds, 5th retry - 16 seconds


Thanks a lot,
