Various SNMP versions

SNMPv1

Send SNMP GET request using the following options:

  • with SNMPv1, community ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to an Agent at demo.snmplabs.com:161
  • for an instance of SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 MIB object
  • Based on asyncio I/O framework

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpget -v1 -c public demo.snmplabs.com SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0
import asyncio
from pysnmp.hlapi.asyncio import *


@asyncio.coroutine
def run():
    snmpEngine = SnmpEngine()
    errorIndication, errorStatus, errorIndex, varBinds = yield from getCmd(
        snmpEngine,
        CommunityData('public', mpModel=0),
        UdpTransportTarget(('demo.snmplabs.com', 161)),
        ContextData(),
        ObjectType(ObjectIdentity('SNMPv2-MIB', 'sysDescr', 0))
    )

    if errorIndication:
        print(errorIndication)
    elif errorStatus:
        print('%s at %s' % (
            errorStatus.prettyPrint(),
            errorIndex and varBinds[int(errorIndex) - 1][0] or '?'
        )
              )
    else:
        for varBind in varBinds:
            print(' = '.join([x.prettyPrint() for x in varBind]))

    snmpEngine.transportDispatcher.closeDispatcher()


asyncio.get_event_loop().run_until_complete(run())

Bulk walk MIB

Send a series of SNMP GETBULK requests using the following options:

  • with SNMPv3, user ‘usr-none-none’, no authentication, no privacy
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to an Agent at demo.snmplabs.com:161
  • for all OIDs past SNMPv2-MIB::system
  • run till end-of-mib condition is reported by Agent
  • based on asyncio I/O framework

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpbulkwalk -v3 -lnoAuthNoPriv -u usr-none-none -Cn0 -Cr50
demo.snmplabs.com SNMPv2-MIB::system
import asyncio
from pysnmp.hlapi.asyncio import *


@asyncio.coroutine
def run(varBinds):
    snmpEngine = SnmpEngine()
    while True:
        errorIndication, errorStatus, errorIndex, \
        varBindTable = yield from bulkCmd(
            snmpEngine,
            UsmUserData('usr-none-none'),
            UdpTransportTarget(('demo.snmplabs.com', 161)),
            ContextData(),
            0, 50,
            *varBinds)

        if errorIndication:
            print(errorIndication)
            break
        elif errorStatus:
            print('%s at %s' % (
                errorStatus.prettyPrint(),
                errorIndex and varBinds[int(errorIndex) - 1][0] or '?'
            )
                  )
        else:
            for varBindRow in varBindTable:
                for varBind in varBindRow:
                    print(' = '.join([x.prettyPrint() for x in varBind]))

        varBinds = varBindTable[-1]
        if isEndOfMib(varBinds):
            break

    snmpEngine.transportDispatcher.closeDispatcher()


loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
loop.run_until_complete(
    run([ObjectType(ObjectIdentity('SNMPv2-MIB', 'sysDescr'))])
