Advanced Command Generator

Concurrent queries

Send multiple SNMP GET requests at once using the following options:

  • with SNMPv2c, community ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to multiple Agents at demo.snmplabs.com
  • for instance of SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 MIB object
  • based on asyncio I/O framework

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com:1161 SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0
$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com:2161 SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0
$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com:3161 SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0
