SNMPGETNEXT(1) Net-SNMP SNMPGETNEXT(1)NAMEsnmpgetnext - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETNEXT
SYNOPSISsnmpgetnext [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cf] AGENT OID [OID]...
snmpget is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP GETNEXT request to
query for information on a network entity. One or more object identi‐
fiers (OIDs) may be given as arguments on the command line. Each vari‐
able name is given in the format specified in variables(5). For each
one, the variable that is lexicographically "next" in the remote
entity's MIB will be returned.
snmpgetnext-c public zeus interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.1
will retrieve the variable interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.2:
interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.2 = softwareLoopback(24)
If the network entity has an error processing the request packet, an
error message will be shown, helping to pinpoint in what way the
request was malformed.
OPTIONS-Cf If -Cf is not specified, some applications (snmpdelta, snmpget,
snmpgetnext and snmpstatus) will try to fix errors returned by
the agent that you were talking to and resend the request. The
only time this is really useful is if you specified a OID that
didn't exist in your request and you're using SNMPv1 which
requires "all or nothing" kinds of requests.
In addition to this option, snmpgetnext takes the common options
described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page. Note that snmpgetnext
REQUIRES an argument specifying the agent to query and at least one OID
argument, as described there.
