       snmpstatus host [community]


       Snmpstatus is an SNMP application that  retrieves  several
       important statistics from a network entity.

       The  host  specification  may  be either a host name or an
       internet address specified in "dot notation"

       The community specifies the community name for the  trans­
       action  with  the  remote system.  If this argument is not
       given, the community name will default to public .

       The information returned is:

       The IP address of the entity.
       A textual description of the entity (sysDescr.0)
       The uptime of the entity (sysUpTime.0)
       The sum of received packets on all interfaces (ifInUCastP­
       kts.* + ifInNUCastPkts.*)
       The  sum of transmitted packets on all interfaces (ifOutU­
       CastPkts.* + ifOutNUCastPkts.*)
       The number of IP input packets (ipInReceives.0)
       The number of IP output packets (ipOutRequests.0)

       For example

       snmpstatus netdev-kbox.cc.cmu.edu public

       will produce output similar to the following:

       []=>[Kinetics FastPath2] Up: 1 day, 4:43:31
       IF recv/trans packets 262874/39867 | IP recv/trans packets

       Snmpstatus  also  checks  the  operational  status  of all
       interfaces (ifOperStatus.*), and if it finds any that  are
       not running, it will report in a manner similar to this:

       2  interfaces  are  down!   The  host specification may be
       either a host name or an  internet  address  specified  in
       "dot notation"

       The  community specifies the community name for the trans­
       action with the remote system.  If none is given, the com­
       munity name defaults to public .

       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
