       snmp - cups snmp backend

       The  CUPS  SNMP backend provides legacy discovery and identification of
       network printers using SNMPv1. When  used  for  discovery  through  the
       scheduler,  the backend will list all printers that respond to a broad‐
       cast SNMPv1 query with the "public" community name. Additional  queries
       are  then  sent to printers that respond in order to determine the cor‐
       rect device URI, make and  model,  and  other  information  needed  for

       In the first form, the SNMP backend is run directly by the user to look
       up the device URI and other information when you have an IP address  or
       hostname.  This	can  be used for programs that need to configure print
       queues where the user has supplied an address but nothing else.

       In the second form, the	SNMP  backend  is  run	indirectly  using  the
       lpinfo(8)  command.  The output provides all printers detected via SNMP
       on the configured broadcast addresses. Note: no broadcast addresses are
       configured by default.

       The  CUPS SNMP backend uses the information from the Host, Printer, and
       Port Monitor MIBs along with some vendor private MIBs  and  intelligent
       port  probes to determine the correct device URI and make and model for
       each printer.

       The SNMP backend reads the /etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration  file,  if
       present, to set the default broadcast address, community name, and log‐
       ging level. The configuration file is documented in  cups-snmp.conf(5).
       The DebugLevel value can be overridden using the CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL envi‐
       ronment variable and the MaxRunTime value can be overridden  using  the
       CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment variable.
