SNMPSTATUS(1)                      Net-SNMP                      SNMPSTATUS(1)



NAME
       snmpstatus - retrieves a fixed set of management information from a network entity

SYNOPSIS
       snmpstatus [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cf] AGENT

DESCRIPTION
       snmpstatus is an SNMP application that retrieves several important statistics from a network entity.

       AGENT identifies a target SNMP agent, which is instrumented to monitor the given objects.  At its simplest, the
       AGENT specification will consist of a hostname or an IPv4 address.  n this situation, the command will  attempt
       communication with the agent, using UDP/IPv4 to port 161 of the given target host.

       See the snmpcmd(1) manual page for a full list of the possible formats for AGENT.

       The information returned is:

              The IP address of the entity.
              A textual description of the entity (sysDescr.0)
              The uptime of the entity's SNMP agent (sysUpTime.0)
              The sum of received packets on all interfaces (ifInUCastPkts.* + ifInNUCastPkts.*)
              The sum of transmitted packets on all interfaces (ifOutUCastPkts.* + ifOutNUCastPkts.*)
              The number of IP input packets (ipInReceives.0)
              The number of IP output packets (ipOutRequests.0)

       For example:

       snmpstatus -c public -v 1 netdev-kbox.cc.cmu.edu

       will produce output similar to the following:

       [128.2.56.220]=>[Kinetics FastPath2] Up: 1 day, 4:43:31
       Interfaces: 1,  Recv/Trans packets: 262874/39867 | IP: 31603/15805

       snmpstatus  also checks the operational status of all interfaces (ifOperStatus.*), and if it finds any that are
       not running, it will report in a manner similar to this:

       2 interfaces are down!

       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.  snmpstatus will attempt to
       reform its request to eliminate the malformed variable (unless the -Cf option is given, see  below),  but  this
       variable will then be missing from the displayed data.


OPTIONS
       COMMON OPTIONS
              Please see snmpcmd(1) for a list of possible values for COMMON OPTIONS as well as their descriptions.

       -Cf    By  default, snmpstatus will try to fix errors returned by the agent and retry a request. In this situa-
              tion, the command will display the data that it can. If the -Cf option  is  specified,  then  snmpstatus
              will not try to fix errors, and the error will cause the command to terminate.
