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 message 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 situation, 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 com- mand to terminate.

NAME
snmpstatus - retrieve important information from a network entity SYNOPSIS
/usr/sfw/bin/snmpstatus [common options] [-Cf] agent DESCRIPTION
The snmpstatus command is an SNMP application that retrieves several important statistics from a network entity. The agent operand identifies a target SNMP agent, which is instrumented to monitor specified objects. At its simplest, the agent specifica- tion consists of a host name or an IPv4 address. In this situation, the command attempts communication with the agent using UDP/IPv4 to port 161 of the target host. See the snmpcmd(1M) manual page for a full list of the possible formats for agent. snmpstatus returns the following information: o the IP address of the entity o a textual description of the entity (sysDescr.0) o the uptime of the entity's SNMP agent (sysUpTime.0) o the sum of received packets on all interfaces (ifInUCastPkts.* + ifInNUCastPkts.*) o the sum of transmitted packets on all interfaces (ifOutUCastPkts.* + ifOutNUCastPkts.*) o the number of IP input packets (ipInReceives.0) o the number of IP output packets (ipOutRequests.0) For example, the command: % snmpstatus -c public -v 1 netdev-kbox.cc.cmu.edu produces 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.*). If it finds any that are not running, it reports themin a manner similar to this: 2 interfaces are down! If the network entity has an error processing the request packet, an error packet is returned and a message is displayed, helping to pin- point the way in which 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
The following options are supported: common options See snmpcmd(1M) 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. With this option, the command will display the data that it can. snmpstatus will not try to fix errors and an error will cause the command to terminate. EXIT STATUS
0 Successful completion. 1 A usage syntax error. A usage message is displayed. Also used for timeout errors. 2 An error occurred while executing the command. An error message is displayed. ATTRIBUTES
