    I’m developing an SNMP agent for our product, which implements the Windows SNMP Extension Agent API.

    Some of our product’s traps may contain a trap VarBind of type OCTET STRING.
    From what I read in the web, I understood that this variable can be 65536 octets long.

    Therefore, it is clear that a trap with a “large” string variable should be fragmented to several SNMP (UDP) messages.

    My question:

    Does Windows SNMP service can handle such a trap and does fragment it correctly, or it limits the maximum variable/PDU length?
