Re: Dude 4.0 beta3: high CPU on cisco devices

bump - seems I forgot to exclude the "inetCidrRouteTable" or "ipForward" as Cisco calls it. So if you wanted to disallow reading of ARP entries and - say - prevent the Dude from polling the Internet routing table (if you have it) .21 and .24 would be enough to exclude. access-list 6 permit 10.xxx.yy...

heyo

If you go in the Dude to menu "functions" and read the descriptions a bit you can find some that are useful, like:
- round
then your function will be:
round(oid("1.3.6.1.4.1.119.2.3.69.401.8.1.1.5.1"))
