       snmp - cups snmp backend (deprecated)

       The  DEPRECATED  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 is deprecated and will no longer be supported in a future version of


       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.
