SNMP.CONF(5)				     Net-SNMP				     SNMP.CONF(5)

       /usr/share/snmp/snmp.conf - configuration file for the Net-SNMP applications.
       ~/.snmp/snmp.conf - personal configuration file.

       snmp.conf  is  the  configuration file which define how the Net-SNMP applications operate.
       Tokens that can be put in them are described in the DIRECTIVES section below.

       Make sure you make these files readable only by the user  if  you  are  storing	sensitive
       information in them like passphrases!

       First,  make sure you have read the snmp_config(5) manual page that describes how the Net-
       SNMP configuration files operate, where they are located and how they all work together.

       mibdirs (mib-dirs|+mib-dirs)
	      Look for textual MIBs to parse in the list of ':' separated  directories.   If  the
	      directive value starts with a '+' it prepends this list to the front of the default
	      directory list compiled into the application.  Note that this value can be overrid-
	      den by the MIBDIRS environment variable.

       mibs (mib-tokens|+mib-tokens)
	      Specifies  a ':' separated list of MIB tokens that represent textual MIB files that
	      should be found and parsed.  If the directive value starts with a '+'  it  prepends
	      this list to the front of the default MIB token list compiled into the application.
	      The special keyword of "ALL" forces all MIBs files found to be read. Note that  the
	      value specified here can be overridden by the MIBS environment variable.

       mibfile file
	      Specifies  a  textual MIB file to read and parse, in addition to the list read from
	      the MIBs token.  Note that the value specified here can be overridden by	the  MIB-
	      FILES environment variable.

       defaultPort port
	      The default port number that all SNMP applications and daemons should use.

       defVersion (v1|v2c|v3)
	      The default SNMP version to use.

       defCommunity string
	      The default SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c community string to use.

       defSecurityName string
	      The default SNMPv3 USM security name you want to use for SNMPv3 requests.

       defContext string
	      The default SNMPv3 context name you want to use.

       defPassphrase string

       defAuthPassphrase string

       defPrivPassphrase string
	      The  default  SNMPv3 USM passphrase(s) to use.  defPassphrase will be used for both
	      authentication and privacy pass phrases if it is specified.

       defAuthType MD5|SHA
	      The SNMPv3 USM authentication type to use.

       defPrivType DES
	      The SNMPv3 USM privacy type to use.  Currently, DES is the only possible value.

       defSecurityLevel noAuthNoPriv|authNoPriv|authPriv
	      The SNMPv3 default security level to use.

       showMibErrors (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Whether or not to display textual MIB parsing errors when commands are run.

       strictCommentTerm (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Whether or not MIBs that are parsed should be  strict  about  comment  termination.
	      "--" terminates a comment if this is true.  Many MIBs have broken comments in them,
	      hence this option.

       mibAllowUnderline (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Allow underline characters in MIBs (illegal).

       mibWarningLevel integerValue
	      The minimum warning level of the warnings printed by the MIB parser.

       logTimestamp (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Whether the commands should log timestamps with their error/message logging or not.
	      Note that output will not look as pretty with timestamps if the source code that is
	      doing the logging does incremental logging of messages that are not  line  buffered
	      before being passed to the logging routines.

       printNumericEnums (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -Oe.

       printNumericOids (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -On.

       dontBreakdownOids (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -Ob.

       escapeQuotes (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -OE.

       quickPrinting (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -Oq.

       printHexText (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -OT.

       suffixPrinting (0|1|2)
	      If  the  value is 1, its equivalent to -Os and if the value is 2 it's equivalent to

       extendedIndex (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Equivalent to -OX.

       noRangeCheck (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Disables the validation of values that  is  done	by  snmpset  before  issuing  the
	      request to the agent.

       dumpPacket (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
	      Whether the commands should dump packets by default.

       doDebugging (1|0)
	      Turns on debugging for all applications run if set to 1.

       debugTokens TOKEN[,TOKEN...]
	      The  debugging  tokens  that should be printed.  See the snmpcmd(1) manual page for
	      debugging usage details.

       snmp_config(5), read_config(3), snmpcmd(1).
