With the changes introduced in
NMS-8671, it is now possible to configure the retry behavior for various SNMP error status codes.
However, the trackers do not currently limit the number of retry attempts, and if the agent continues to respond with the same error, the client will continue to retry. This can cause bursts of CPU usage and network traffic and prevent certain functions such as a data collection from operating properly.
When performing retries, we should introduce some mechanism to limit the number of retry attempts made.
