       snmpwalk [common arguments] [-C APPOPTS] [objectID]


       Snmpwalk  is  an  SNMP  application  that  uses  GET  NEXT
       Requests  to  query for a tree of information about a net­
       work entity.

       A variable may also be given on the  command  line.   This
       variable  specifies which portion of the object identifier
       space will be searched using GET NEXT Requests.  All vari­
       ables  in the subtree below the given variable are queried
       and their values presented to  the  user.   Each  variable
       name is given in the format specified in variables(5).

       If  the  "objectID" argument is not present, snmpwalk will
       search MIB-2.

       For example

       snmpwalk zeus public system

       will retrieve all of the variables under system:

       system.sysDescr.0 =  "SunOS  zeus.net.cmu.edu  4.1.3_U1  1
       system.sysObjectID.0   =   OID:   enterprises.hp.nm.hpsys­
       system.sysUpTime.0  =  Timeticks:  (155274552)  17   days,
       system.sysContact.0 = ""
       system.sysName.0 = "zeus.net.cmu.edu"
       system.sysLocation.0 = ""
       system.sysServices.0 = 72

       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

       If the tree search causes attempts to  search  beyond  the
       end of the MIB, a message will be displayed:

       End of MIB.


       In  addition  to  the  arguments defined in the snmpcmd(1)
       manual page, the following options are supported as well:

       -Ci    Includes the requested oid  in  the  search  range.
              walk  anyway.   Other  agent's return OIDs that are
              out  of  order  and  can  cause  snmpwalk  to  loop
              infinitely  until  stopped.   By  default, snmpwalk
              tries to detect this behavior and warns you when it
              hits  an  agent  acting illegally.  Use -Cc to turn
              off this behavior.


       snmpcmd(1), variables(5).
