Configuring the SNMP Commit Delay Timer (NSM Procedure)

You can configure the SNMP commit delay timer to specify the length of time between when a device first receives an SNMP nonvolatile Set request and when the commit is requested for the candidate configuration. If the device receives new SNMP Set requests within this time, the commit delay timer resets to the configured time. If the device does not receive new SNMP Set requests within this time, the candidate configuration is committed and the JUNOScript session closes (the configuration lock is released). If the device receives a new SNMP Set request while the candidate configuration is being committed, the SNMP Set request is rejected and an error notification is generated.

To configure the SNMP commit delay timer for nonvolatile requests in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand SNMP.
  5. Select Nonvolatile.
  6. Enter the parameters as specified in Table 169.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the SNMP settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
