       snmpwalk - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETNEXT requests.


       snmpwalk  is an SNMP application that uses SNMP GETNEXT requests to query a network entity
       for a tree of information.

       An object identifier (OID) may be given on the command line.   This  OID  specifies  which
       portion of the object identifier space will be searched using GETNEXT requests.	All vari-
       ables in the subtree below the given OID are queried and their  values  presented  to  the
       user.  Each variable name is given in the format specified in variables(5).

       If  no  OID argument is present, snmpwalk will search MIB-2.  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.

       If  the	tree search causes attempts to search beyond the end of the MIB, the message "End
       of MIB" will be displayed.

       -Cc     Do not check whether the returned OIDs are increasing.  Some agents (LaserJets are
	       an  example)  return  OIDs  out of order, but can complete the walk anyway.  Other
	       agents return OIDs that are out of order and can cause snmpwalk	to  loop  indefi-
	       nitely.	 By default, snmpwalk tries to detect this behavior and warns you when it
	       hits an agent acting illegally.	Use -Cc to turn off this behaviour.

       -Ci     Include the given OID  in  the  search  range.	Normally  snmpwalk  uses  GETNEXT
	       requests  starting  with  the OID you specified and returns all results in the MIB
	       tree after that OID.  Sometimes, you may wish to include the OID specified on  the
	       command line in the printed results if it is a valid OID in the tree itself.  This
	       option lets you do this.

       -Cp     Upon completion of the walk, print the number of variables found.

       In addition to these options, snmpwalk takes the common	options  described  in	the  snm-
       pcmd(1) manual page.

       The command:

       snmpwalk -Os -c public -v 1 zeus system

       will retrieve all of the variables under system:

       sysDescr.0 = STRING: "SunOS zeus.net.cmu.edu 4.1.3_U1 1 sun4m"
       sysObjectID.0 = OID: enterprises.hp.nm.hpsystem.10.1.1
       sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (155274552) 17 days, 23:19:05
       sysContact.0 = STRING: ""
       sysName.0 = STRING: "zeus.net.cmu.edu"
       sysLocation.0 = STRING: ""
       sysServices.0 = INTEGER: 72

       snmpcmd(1), snmpbulkwalk(1), variables(5).
