Hi, list,

        Got a question on snmpCollect's behavior. When I configure through xnmsnmpconf to collect data from
        all instances of a network device, what does snmpCollect do? I assume it will check, somewhere, what
        are the instances of the device and issue the snmpget against every instance.

        If the instance (interface) is already down, will snmpCollect detect the down status and stop query
        that interface? Or it will do the snmpget regardless and return with an error or defer the query to
        some later time.

        If the above assumption is true and if there are a lot of down interfaces on a router, will it impact
        the performance of snmpCollect?
