SNMPBULKGET(1)                     Net-SNMP                     SNMPBULKGET(1)



NAME
       snmpbulkget - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETBULK requests.

SYNOPSIS
       snmpbulkget [APPLICATION OPTIONS] [COMMON OPTIONS] OID [OID]...

DESCRIPTION
       snmpbulkget is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP GETBULK request to query a network entity efficiently for
       information.  One or more object identifiers (OIDs) may be given as arguments on the command line.  Each  vari-
       able name is given in the format specified in variables(5).

       If  the  network entity has an error processing the request packet, an error packet will be returned and a mes-
       sage will be shown, helping to pinpoint why the request was malformed.

OPTIONS
       -Cn<NUM>
               Set the non-repeaters field in the GETBULK PDU.  This specifies the number of supplied  variables  that
               should not be iterated over.  The default is 0.

       -Cr<NUM>
               Set the max-repetitions field in the GETBULK PDU.  This specifies the maximum number of iterations over
               the repeating variables.  The default is 10.

       In addition to these options, snmpbulkget takes the common options described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page.

EXAMPLE
       The command:

       snmpbulkget -v2c -Cn1 -Cr5 -Os -c public zeus system ifTable

       will retrieve the variable system.sysDescr.0 (which is the lexicographically next object  to  system)  and  the
       first 5 objects in the ifTable:

       sysDescr.0 = STRING: "SunOS zeus.net.cmu.edu 4.1.3_U1 1 sun4m"
       ifIndex.1 = INTEGER: 1
       ifIndex.2 = INTEGER: 2
       ifDescr.1 = STRING: "lo0"
       et cetera.

NOTE
       As the name implies, snmpbulkget utilizes the SNMP GETBULK message, which is not available in SNMPv1.
