       snmptranslate  [-h]  [-V]  [-D  <TOKEN[,TOKEN,...]>]   [-I
       <INOPTS>]  [-O  <OUTOPTS>] [-P <MIBOPTS>] [-T <TRANSOPTS>]
       [-m <mibs>] [-M <mibdirs>] objectID


       Snmptranslate is an application that  translates  an  SNMP
       object  (SMI  value or symbolic form) into another form of
       information.  With no other options, an SNMP  object  will
       be translated to its SMI value.

       The options have the following meanings:

       -h     Print help message

       -V     Print version message and exit

       -D <TOKEN[,TOKEN,...]>
              Enable  debugging output.  See the snmpcmd man page
              for more information.

       -I <INOPTS>
              See the snmpcmd man page for a description  of  the
              OID input options

       -O <OUTOPTS>
              See  the  snmpcmd man page for a description of the
              OID output options

       -P <MIBOPTS>
              See the snmpcmd man page for a description  of  the
              MIB parsing options

       -T <TRANSOPTS>
              Translate  an SNMP object to its symbolic form. The
              following TRANSOPTS are available:

       -Td    print full details of the specified OID

       -Tp    print a graphical tree, rooted at the specified OID

       -Ta    dump the loaded MIB in a trivial form

       -Tl    dump a labeled form of all objects

       -To    dump a numeric form of all objects

       -Ts    dump a symbolic form of all objects

       -Tt    dump  a tree form of the loaded mibs (mostly useful
              for debugging)

       will translate "sysDecr" to


       snmptranslate -Td -OS system.sysDescr

       will translate "sysDecr" into

       sysDescr OBJECT-TYPE
         -- FROM SNMPv2-MIB
         -- TEXTUAL CONVENTION DisplayString
         DISPLAY-HINT "255a"
         MAX-ACCESS read-only
         STATUS current
         DESCRIPTION "A textual description of the entity. This value should
            include the full name and version identification of the
            system's hardware type, software operating-system, and
            networking software."
       ::= { iso(1) org(3) dod(6) internet(1) mgmt(2) mib-2(1) system(1) 1 }

       snmptranslate -Tp -OS system

       will print the following tree:

          +-- -R-- String    sysDescr(1)
          |        Textual Convention: DisplayString
          |        Size: 0..255

                +-- ---- Integer   sysORIndex(1)
                +-- -R-- ObjID     sysORID(2)

       snmptranslate -Tl | head

       will produce the following dump:

       will produce the following dump


       snmptranslate -Ts | head

       will produce the following dump

                     sysUpTime(3) type=8
