SNMPBULKGET(1)                     Net-SNMP                     SNMPBULKGET(1)




NAME

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


SYNOPSIS

       snmpbulkget [APPLICATION OPTIONS] [COMMON OPTIONS] OID [OID]...


DESCRIPTION

       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 vari-
       ables(5).

       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.


OPTIONS

       -Cn<NUM>
               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.

       -Cr<NUM>
               Set the max-repetitions field in the GETBULK PDU.  This  speci-
               fies  the maximum number of iterations over the repeating vari-
               ables.  The default is 10.

       In addition to these options,  snmpbulkget  takes  the  common  options
       described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page.


EXAMPLE

       The command:

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

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

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


NOTE

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