SNMPSTATUS(1) Net-SNMP SNMPSTATUS(1)
snmpstatus - Retrieves important information from a network entity.
snmpstatus [COMMON OPTIONS]
snmpstatus is an SNMP application that retrieves several important statistics from a net-
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.* + ifOutNUCastP-
The number of IP input packets (ipInReceives.0)
The number of IP output packets (ipOutRequests.0)
snmpstatus -c public -v 1 netdev-kbox.cc.cmu.edu
will produce output similar to the following:
[22.214.171.124]=>[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 mal-
formed. 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.
snmpstatus takes the common options described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page and also the
-Cf option described in the snmpget(1) manual page.
