Walking operations

Walk whole MIB

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

  • with SNMPv3, user ‘usr-md5-none’, MD5 authentication, no privacy
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to an Agent at demo.snmplabs.com:161
  • for all OIDs in IF-MIB

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpwalk -v3 -lauthPriv -u usr-md5-none -A authkey1 -X privkey1 demo.snmplabs.com IF-MIB::
from pysnmp.hlapi import *

for (errorIndication,
     errorStatus,
     errorIndex,
     varBinds) in nextCmd(SnmpEngine(),
                          UsmUserData('usr-md5-none', 'authkey1'),
                          UdpTransportTarget(('demo.snmplabs.com', 161)),
                          ContextData(),
                          ObjectType(ObjectIdentity('IF-MIB'))):

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