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

       snmpbulkget [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cn <num>] [-Cr <NUM>] AGENT OID [OID]...

       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 variable name is given in the format specified in

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

	       Set the non-repeaters field in the GETBULK PDU.	This specifies the number of sup-
	       plied variables that should not be iterated over.  The default is 0.

	       Set the max-repetitions field in the GETBULK PDU.  This specifies the maximum num-
	       ber of iterations over the repeating variables.	The default is 10.

       In  addition  to these options, snmpbulkget takes the common options described in the snm-
       pcmd(1) manual page.  Note that snmpbulkget REQUIRES  an argument specifying the agent  to
       query and at least one OID argument, as described there.

       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.

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

       snmpcmd(1), variables(5), RFC 1905.
