CPU utilization spikes on a device when UDT polls it.


  • Adjust the SNMP Pacing Delay setting on Advanced settings page (Settings > UDT Settings > Advanced Settings) from 0 to 1 or 1 to 2.

    This setting affects all UDT jobs and may increase the time to complete them.

    • Set your polling mode to SNMPv1 because some devices do not handle GetBulk requests very well.
  • Check the length of the SNMP queue on relevant devices.
