       The  CUPS  SNMP backend provides legacy discovery and identification of
       network printers using SNMPv1.  When used  for  discovery  through  the
       scheduler,  the  backend  will  list  all  printers  that  respond to a
       broadcast SNMPv1 query with the "public"  community  name.   Additional
       queries  are  then  sent to printers that respond in order to determine
       the correct device URI, make and model, and  other  information  needed
       for printing.

       In the first form, the SNMP backend is run directly by the user to look
       up the device URI and other information when you have an IP address  or
       hostname.   This  can be used for programs that need to configure print
       queues where the user has supplied an address but nothing else.

       In the second form, the  SNMP  backend  is  run  indirectly  using  the
       lpinfo(8)  command.  The output provides all printers detected via SNMP
       on the configured broadcast addresses.  Note:  no  broadcast  addresses
       are configured by default.


       The  DebugLevel  value  can  be  overridden  using the CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL
       environment variable.  The MaxRunTime value can be overridden using the
       CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment variable.


       The  SNMP  backend reads the /etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration file, if
       present, to set the default  broadcast  address,  community  name,  and
       logging level.


       The  CUPS SNMP backend uses the information from the Host, Printer, and
       Port Monitor MIBs along with some vendor private MIBs  and  intelligent
       port  probes to determine the correct device URI and make and model for
       each printer.
