correction - there's no need to restart snmpd - to summarise the problem

	* -HUP to freeradius causes problem to SMUX/snmpd

	* stop then start (kill) work fine since a fresh connection is

i suspect that the connection is that a new connection is not estanlished
after a -HUP signal.

Subject: snmp and freeradius restart

hi - we're successfully using snmp to monitor the freeradius statistics.

however - when freeradius is restarted with HUP signal, the snmp connection
doesn't work. i'm not too familair with snmp/smuc but i'm guessing
freeradius is not reconnecting to snmpd?

to solve this we have to restart snmpd before freeradius.

is this a known issue?
