SNMPGET(1)                         Net-SNMP                         SNMPGET(1)



NAME
       snmpget - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GET requests

SYNOPSIS
       snmpget [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cf] OID [OID]...

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

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, snmpget REQUIRES options and agent arguments, as described in the snmpcmd(1) manual
       page.

EXAMPLES
       The command:

           snmpget -c public zeus system.sysDescr.0

       will retrieve the variable system.sysDescr.0 from the host zeus using the community string public :

           system.sysDescr.0 = "SunOS zeus.net.cmu.edu 4.1.3_U1 1 sun4m"

       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 in what way the request was malformed.  If there were  other  variables
       in the request, the request will be resent without the bad variable.

       Here  is  another  example.  The  -c  and -v options are defined in the snmpcmd(1) manual page. (Note that sys-
       tem.sysUpTime is an incomplete OID, as it needs the .0 index appended to it):

           snmpget -v1 -Cf -c public localhost system.sysUpTime system.sysContact.0

       This example will return the following:

           Error in packet
           Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
           This name doesn't exist: system.sysUpTime

       Similarly, the command:
           snmpget -v1 -c public localhost system.sysUpTime system.sysContact.0

       Will return:

           Error in packet
           Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
           This name doesn't exist: system.sysUpTime

           system.sysContact.0 = STRING: root@localhost

       With the -Cf flag specified the application will not try to fix the PDU for you.
