NAME

       snmpgetnext - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETNEXT requests

SYNOPSIS

       snmpgetnext [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cf] AGENT OID [OID]...

DESCRIPTION

       snmpget is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP GETNEXT request to query for information
       on a network entity.  One or more object identifiers (OIDs) may be given as  arguments  on
       the  command  line.   Each variable name is given in the format specified in variables(5).
       For each one, the variable that is lexicographically "next" in  the  remote  entity's  MIB
       will be returned.

       For example:

       snmpgetnext -c public zeus interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.1

       will retrieve the variable interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.2:

       interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifType.2 = softwareLoopback(24)

       If the network entity has an error processing the request packet, an error message will be
       shown, helping to pinpoint in what way the request was malformed.

OPTIONS

       -Cf     If -Cf is not specified, some applications (snmpdelta,  snmpget,  snmpgetnext  and
               snmpstatus)  will try to fix errors returned by the agent that you were talking to
               and resend the request.  The only time this is really useful is if you specified a
               OID  that didn't exist in your request and you're using SNMPv1 which requires "all
               or nothing" kinds of requests.

       In addition to this  option,  snmpgetnext  takes  the  common  options  described  in  the
       snmpcmd(1)  manual  page.  Note that snmpgetnext REQUIRES an argument specifying the agent
       to query and at least one OID argument, as described there.
