snmpd was flooding my syslog with
After research I found the option insnmpd: Connection from UDP: [127.0.0.1]:46495
In my case I turned logging of by changing this line/etc/default/snmpd
to thisSNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/snmpd.pid 127.0.0.1'
I will have to make further research for hitting the right logging level but for now my syslog is clean.SNMPDOPTS='-Lf /dev/null -u snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/snmpd.pid 127.0.0.1'
