SNMP monitoring problem on the HP UX


I have a problem on enabling SNMP monitoring on Cache.

I installed on HP UX NET SNMP 5.7.2 package from HP Software Center and enabled agentX protocol in snmpd.cfg. 

When I enabled full debugging on Cache and NET SNMP I discovered that sent and received packets on both sides are not the same. Some bytes are different. I think the problem is in default charset for TCP/IP connection which is on our system set to CP1250 instead of default RAW. So result is that Cache notifies are not visibile from snmpwalk etc.

Is there a solution for this issue?

Been a long time since I did this but when I did the performance impact was huge with a massive increase (+20%) in CPU.

There is still a warning on the app developer site to never do that.

Where is warning about a performance impact? Some link?

Main question is: Is there a method to change charset for current process and SNMP service in Cache?
