       snmpget [-Cf] [ common arguments ] objectID  [objectID]...


       Snmpget  is  an SNMP application that uses the GET Request
       to query for information on a network entity.  One or more
       fully  qualified  object identifiers may be given as argu­
       ments on the command line.  Each variable name is given in
       the format specified in variables(5).

       For example

       snmpget zeus public system.sysDescr.0

       will retrieve the variable system.sysDescr.0:

       system.sysDescr.0  =  "SunOS  zeus.net.cmu.edu  4.1.3_U1 1

       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 in what way the request
       was  malformed.   If  there  were  other  variables in the
       request, the request will be resent without the bad  vari­


       -Cf    If  -Cf  is not specified, some applications (E.G.,
              snmpget, snmpgetnext, snmpwalk, etc)  will  try  to
              fix  errors  returned  by  the  agent that you were
              talking to and resend the request.  The  only  time
              this  is  really  useful  is if you specified a OID
              that didn't exist in your request and you're  using
              SNMPv1  which  requires  "all  or nothing" kinds of
              requests. Example (system.sysUptime  is  an  incom­
              plete  OID  request  for  agents as it needs the .0
              index appended to it):
              snmpget -v 1 -Cf localhost public system.sysUpTime system.sysContact.0
              Error in packet
              Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
              This name doesn't exist: system.sysUpTime

              snmpget -v 1 localhost public system.sysUpTime system.sysContact.0
              Error in packet
              Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
              This name doesn't exist: system.sysUpTime

              system.sysContact.0 = root@localhost

              With the -Cf specified the application will not try
