Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 11.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
If the snmpd config file contains a "logmatch" parameter with an incorrect regex expression, net-snmp crashes when attempting to start or restart.
Example of an incorrect regex expression that will crash snmpd:
In this example substring "starting\ $^" is incorrect because:

$ - end string symbol
String cannot have end before start.
