Concurrent queries

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

  • with SNMPv2c, community ‘public’
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to an Agent at demo.snmplabs.com:161
  • for two instances of SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 and SNMPv2-MIB::sysLocation.0 MIB object,
  • based on Twisted I/O framework

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0
$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com SNMPv2-MIB::sysLocation.0

Walk multiple Agents at once

  • with SNMPv3 with user ‘usr-md5-none’, MD5 auth and no privacy protocols
  • over IPv4/UDP
  • to Agents at demo.snmplabs.com:161 and demo.snmplabs.com:1161
  • for multiple MIB subtrees and tables
  • for whole MIB
  • based on Twisted I/O framework

Functionally similar to:

$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.com:161 SNMPv2-MIB::system
$ snmpget -v2c -c public demo.snmplabs.comL1161 SNMPv2-MIB::system
