Where do I set the timeout intervals to 5  20  7? SNMP Config. only
allows me to put one value in the timeout field.



We ran into the same problem.  Setting the timeout intervals
to the following helped:
5  20  7

The 1st timeout is long enough for normal WAN/LAN devices.
The 2nd one buys some time for network conjestion to go away.
The 3rd could be 3/5/7... it really was the 2nd one that counts.

The above settings improve false-down reporting about 80%.
