communicates with a network entity using SNMP GETNEXT Requests 



snmpgetnext [COMMON_OPTION] [-Cf] AGENT OID [OID]...


The snmpget utility 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 snmp_variables. For each one, the variable that is lexicographically "next" in the remote entity's MIB will be returned.

For example:

$ snmpgetnext -v 1 -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.


snmpgetnext takes the common options described in the snmpcmd reference page and also the -Cf option described in the snmpget reference page.

Note that snmpgetnext REQUIRES an argument specifying the agent to query and at least one OID argument, as described there.
