I’m dealing with a problem where snmp_exporter would time out ( after 3 retries) while trying to collect metrics from a target which is an Asus router running snmpd.
The snmp_exporter is installed on a Linux box with its own snmp.yml ( part of the linux-amd64 pkg). The snmpwalk works from the same host.
I thought the snmp.yml is probably not right so tried to use the generator but it failed due to unable to walk an OID.
Is there a way I can use the existing yml and make it work somehow? Am I missing something?
