Telegraf SNMP input problem

Hello guys
I need some help understanding this issue.
I am trying to pull snmp metrics from my remote agent with ip : “”
but when i see the real time logs, it shows the agent is not responding with ip “”, hence no data collection.
What i dont understand is why telegraf is changing the port from 161 to 162.
From my knowledge , 162 is snmp trap port, i cant make get requests through that port.
Someone please help me. Thanks

I see others in the slack channel have responded, but to re-iterate their questions:

  • can you please post the complete config? Maybe you do have another input instance with udp and port 162?
  • Furthermore, are you sure that the Telegraf instance is using the shown config?
