       snmpbulkget - communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETBULK requests.


       snmpbulkget [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cn <num>] [-Cr <NUM>] AGENT OID [OID]...


       snmpbulkget  is  an SNMP application that uses the SNMP GETBULK request to query a network
       entity efficiently for information.  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

       If the network entity has an error processing the request packet, an error packet will  be
       returned and a message will be shown, helping to pinpoint why the request was malformed.


               Set  the  non-repeaters  field  in  the GETBULK PDU.  This specifies the number of
               supplied variables that should not be iterated over.  The default is 0.

               Set the max-repetitions field in the GETBULK  PDU.   This  specifies  the  maximum
               number of iterations over the repeating variables.  The default is 10.

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


       The command:

       snmpbulkget -v2c -Cn1 -Cr5 -Os -c public zeus system ifTable

       will  retrieve  the variable system.sysDescr.0 (which is the lexicographically next object
       to system) and the first 5 objects in the ifTable:

       sysDescr.0 = STRING: "SunOS 4.1.3_U1 1 sun4m"
       ifIndex.1 = INTEGER: 1
       ifIndex.2 = INTEGER: 2
       ifDescr.1 = STRING: "lo0"
       et cetera.


       As the name implies, snmpbulkget utilizes the SNMP GETBULK message, which is not available
       in SNMPv1.
