NAME

snmpbulkget - communicates with a network entity using SNMP BULK Requests.

SYNOPSIS

snmpbulkget [common arguments] [objectID]...

DESCRIPTION

In addition to the common arguments, snmpbulkget takes one specific argument

-B <nonrep> <rep>

where nonrep specifies the number of input variables that should not repeat, and rep is the maximum number of repetitions of the rest of the variables. The default is -B 0 100.

For example

snmpbulkwalk -v 2c -B 1 10 zeus public system interfaces

will retrieve the variable system.sysDescr.0 (which is the lexicographically next object to system) and the first 10 objects of the interfaces group.

system.sysDescr.0 = "SunOS zeus.net.cmu.edu 4.1.3_U1 1 sun4m"
interfaces.ifNumber.0
= 2
interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifIndex.1
= 1
interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifIndex.2
= 2
interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifDescr.1
= "lo0"
et cetera.

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.

NOTE

As the name implies, snmpbulkget utilizes the SNMP GETBULK message, which is not available in SNMP v1.
