NAME

       snmptranslate - translate MIB OID names between numeric and textual forms

SYNOPSIS

       snmptranslate [OPTIONS] OID [OID]...

DESCRIPTION

       snmptranslate  is an application that translates one or more SNMP object identifier values
       from their symbolic (textual) forms into their numerical forms (or vice versa).

       OID is either a numeric or textual object identifier.

OPTIONS

       -D[TOKEN[,...]]
               Turn on debugging output for the given TOKEN(s).  Try ALL  for  extremely  verbose
               output.

       -h      Display a brief usage message and then exit.

       -m MIBLIST
               Specifies  a  colon  separated  list  of MIB modules to load for this application.
               This overrides the environment variable MIBS.

               The special keyword ALL is used to specify all modules  in  all  directories  when
               searching  for  MIB  files.  Every file whose name does not begin with "." will be
               parsed as if it were a MIB file.

       -M DIRLIST
               Specifies a colon  separated  list  of  directories  to  search  for  MIBs.   This
               overrides the environment variable MIBDIRS.

       -T TRANSOPTS
               Provides  control over the translation of the OID values.  The following TRANSOPTS
               are available:

               -Td   Print full details of the specified OID.

               -Tp   Print a graphical tree, rooted at the specified OID.

               -Ta   Dump the loaded MIB in a trivial form.

               -Tl   Dump a labeled form of all objects.

               -To   Dump a numeric form of all objects.

               -Ts   Dump a symbolic form of all objects.

               -Tt   Dump a tree form of the loaded MIBs (mostly useful for debugging).

               -Tz   Dump a numeric and labeled form of all objects (compatible  with  MIB2SCHEMA
                     format).

       -V      Display version information for the application and then exit.

       -w WIDTH
               Specifies the width of -Tp and -Td output. The default is very large.

       In addition to the above options, snmptranslate takes the OID input (-I), MIB parsing (-M)
       and OID output (-O) options described in the INPUT OPTIONS, MIB PARSING OPTIONS and OUTPUT
       OPTIONS sections of the snmpcmd(1) manual page.

EXAMPLES

       ·   snmptranslate -On -IR sysDescr
           will translate "sysDescr" to a more qualified form:

           system.sysDescr

       ·   snmptranslate -Onf -IR sysDescr
           will translate "sysDecr" to:

           .iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib-2.system.sysDescr

       ·   snmptranslate -Td -OS system.sysDescr
           will translate "sysDecr" into:

           SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr
           sysDescr OBJECT-TYPE
             -- FROM SNMPv2-MIB
             -- TEXTUAL CONVENTION DisplayString
             SYNTAX OCTET STRING (0..255)
             DISPLAY-HINT "255a"
             MAX-ACCESS read-only
             STATUS current
             DESCRIPTION "A textual description of the entity. This
                          value should include the full name and
                          version identification of the system's
                          hardware type, software operating-system,
                          and networking software."
