Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a widely used protocol
for monitoring the health and welfare of network equipment
(eg. routers), computer equipment and even devices like
UPSs. Net-SNMP is a suite of applications used to implement SNMP v1,
SNMP v2c and SNMP v3 using both IPv4 and IPv6. The suite includes:
* Command-line applications to:
* retrieve information from an SNMP-capable device, either using
single requests (snmpget, snmpgetnext), or multiple requests
(snmpwalk, snmptable, snmpdelta).
* manipulate configuration information on an SNMP-capable device
* retrieve a fixed collection of information from an
SNMP-capable device (snmpdf, snmpnetstat, snmpstatus).
* convert between numerical and textual forms of MIB OIDs, and
display MIB content and structure (snmptranslate).
* A graphical MIB browser (tkmib), using Tk/perl.
* A daemon application for receiving SNMP notifications
(snmptrapd). Selected notifications can be logged (to syslog,
the NT Event Log, or a plain text file), forwarded to another
SNMP management system, or passed to an external application.
* An extensible agent for responding to SNMP queries for
management information (snmpd). This includes built-in support
for a wide range of MIB information modules, and can be extended
using dynamically loaded modules, external scripts and commands,
and both the SNMP multiplexing (SMUX) and Agent Extensibility
* A library for developing new SNMP applications, with both C and
* The snmpd daemon does not provide much useful information.
Installing it as a service under Cygwin is left as an exercise
for the user.
* I wasn't able to run the test suite due to some issue with the
way that runs the daemon that I wasn't able to resolve.
* This is an NMU of an orphaned package, rebuilding it for perl 5.32
and python3. If this package doesn't have a maintainer by the next
time such a rebuild is needed, it will be removed.
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
