Packet loss in network communication is the main process occurs in traditional SNMP protocol implementations. Using SNMPv3/USM/UDP transport has almost no startup overhead and thus works efficiently if SNMP interactions are sporadic. SNMPv3/USM/UDP is a good choice for deployments where the volume of data retrieved/manipulated via SNMP is relatively small, where applications benefit from an applications layer retransmission algorithms and where the churn of users requiring SNMP access is limited. The usage of TCP has the same benefits and drawbacks mentioned already for the SNMPv3/TSM/SSH transport.
