Just saw this same issue reported elsewhere. Using strace and see that it stalls, then eats cpu.
So its going to take a fix to the vmware-snmp rpm for that platform.
Having this exact same issue.. do you know if there is a patch or a KB out for this issue?
Same problem here.
VCSA appliance with embedded PSC - Managed to set SNMP no problems.
VCSA with External Load Balanced HA PSC (Citrix Netscaler) wont respond.
All running on the same build. Going to log a call with VMware and see what they say.
1) Enter Appliance Shell (if you are not already)
chsh -s /bin/appliancesh root
2) log out, log back in. (depending on above)
3) If SNMP is not currently enabled you wont be able to progress, so enable it:
3) Set the communities (seperated by commas)
Sorry to resurface the old thread, but I am facing the same issue.
Did anyone found a workaround for this?
Also have this issue.

Hi all, please see the KB articles below. I was affected by the first issue and then the second after the upgrade to update 2. We have 3 VCSA's all with an external PSC. Please note that, after the VCSA/PSC upgrade from 6.0 u1 to 6.0 u2, SNMP does work initially. Then after a while it consumes 100% CPU and stops responding. Doesn't look like VMWare have a fix for the second issue yet. I have just opened an SR for it.
This issue is now fixed in 6.0 U2a
This problem also occurred on VCSA 6.0 U2
I have updated to VCSA 6.0 U3 all problem fixed
