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 variable 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 message 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 sup-
	       plied 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 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.

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.
