the snmp plugin keeps the connection objects it creates for each host so
it doesn't need to create them again and again. It seems like those
connection objects keep the UDP socket open, which actually is kind of
Unfortunately, this will limit us to some small number of hosts,
either the number of ports or the number of file handles will limit
this. Maybe the above behavior should be configurable in order to allow
for higher numbers and/or keep file handle counts lower.
