I watch the hosts and guests (Debian) with Nagios / Centreon, they make 
SNMP queries to those servers that run Snmpd (Net-SNMP agent).

I have an unresolved bug for several years, in SNMP response Virtio 
interfaces speed is zero and I have an alert on the suppervision.

In 2011, I posted a bug report on the Debian bug tracking system :


I would like some feedback from other people.

A guest who uses Virtio and Snmpd when you make a SNMP query, do you 
have a speed to zero for Virtio interface?

eth0 and eth1 are Virtio:
