I see a lot of odd things with devmon. I have seen an issue something like on my Dell R710 with OMSA. It patches itself into snmpd via a loaded library to report on Dell storage
and sometimes the response from that get's really slow and blocks response to devmon. An update a while back to OMSA cleared that up.
I also have to run a cron job that does a kill -9 on it every two hours and then restart it... It likes to gobble memory like it's going out of style.
People DO respond on the devmon list, just a little slowly.
I run my devmon in multi node mode with MySQL backing. when I do see gross errors like this I turn on debug and watch the devmon log to see what errors are thrown.
What OS and SNMPD is running on the HP? Especially the SNMPD... It matters. OS X and pFSense don't report some OIDs correctly due to the snmpd they run. It's one of those
"snmpd/ya just gotta know about it" things.
