Problems to collect description field via SNMP

Publication Date:  2012-07-27 Views:  50 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
 When trying to collect information by SNMP get, the "description" field comes truncated.
Alarm Information
Description strings comes truncated (cutted in the edges).
Handling Process
There is no handling process. It's a software limitation that should be respected. Description should not have more than 64 character.
Root Cause
When configuring the description field inside a router interface, we can put a big description with a lot of characters but when trying to collect it via snmp get, the router only sends the first 64 characters, what turns description bigger than that truncated.
Suggestions
Try always to set the description field as short as possible.
