       ~/.snmp/snmp.conf - personal configuration file.


       snmp.conf is the configuration file which define  how  the
       ucd-snmp  SNMP  applications  operate.  Tokens that can be
       put in them are described in the DIRECTIVES section below.


       Make  sure  you  make these files read-only by the user if
       you are storing sensitive information in them  like  pass-

       First,  make  sure you have read the snmp_config(5) manual
       page that describes how the ucd-snmp  configuration  files
       operate,  where  they  are  located  and how they all work


       mibdirs (mib-dirs|+mib-dirs)
              Look for textual mibs to parse in the list  of  ':'
              separated  directories.   If  the  directive  value
              starts with a '+' it  prepends  this  list  to  the
              front  of  the default directory list compiled into
              the application.  Note that this value can be over­
              ridden by the MIBDIRS environment variable.

       mibs (mib-tokens|+mib-tokens)
              Specifies  a  ':' separated list of mib tokens that
              represent textual mib files that  should  be  found
              and  parsed.   If the directive value starts with a
              '+' it prepends this  list  to  the  front  of  the
              default  mib  token list compiled into the applica­
              tion.  The special keyword of "ALL" forces all mibs
              files  found to be read. Note that the value speci­
              fied here can be overridden by the MIBS environment

       mibfile file
              Specifies  a textual mib file to read and parse, in
              addition to the list  read  from  the  mibs  token.
              Note  that the value specified here can be overrid­
              den by the MIBFILES environment variable.

       defaultPort port
              The default port number that all snmp  applications
              and demons should use.

       defVersion (v1|v2c|v3)
              The default snmp version to use.

       defCommunity string
              The  default snmpv1 and snmpv2c community string to
              The  default snmpv3 USM passphrase(s) to use.  def­
              Passphrase will be used for both authentication and
              privacy pass phrases if it is specified.

       defAuthType     MD5|SHA
              The  snmpv3  USM  authentication type to use.  Only
              MD5 is supported out of the box at this time.

       defPrivType     DES
              The snmpv3 USM privacy  type  to  use.   Currently,
              only DES is the possible value, and isn't supported
              out of the box due to U.S. export restrictions.

       defSecurityLevel noAuthNoPriv|authNoPriv|authPriv
              The snmpv3 default security level to use.

       showMibErrors   (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Whether or  not  to  display  textual  mib  parsing
              errors when commands are run.

       strictCommentTerm (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Whether  or  not  mibs  that  are  parsed should be
              strict about comment termination.  "--"  terminates
              a  comment  if this is true.  Many distributed mibs
              have broken comments in them, hence this option.

       mibAllowUnderline (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Allow underline characters in mibs (illegal).

       mibWarningLevel integerValue
              The minimum warning level of the  warnings  printed
              by the mib parser.

       logTimestamp      (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Whether  the  commands  should  log timestamps with
              their error/message logging or not.  Note that out­
              put  will not look as pretty with timestamps if the
              source code that is doing the logging  does  incre­
              mental  logging  of  messages  that  are  not  line
              buffered before being passed to  the  logging  rou­

       printNumericEnums (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Equivalent to -Oe

       printNumericOids (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Equivalent to -On

       dontBreakdownOids (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Equivalent to -Ob

       escapeQuotes (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              snmpset before issuing the request to the agent.

       dumpPacket      (1|yes|true|0|no|false)
              Whether   the   commands  should  dump  packets  by

       doDebugging (1|0)
              Turns on debugging for all applications run if  set
              to 1.

       debugTokens token[,token...]
              The  debugging  tokens that should be printed.  See
              the snmpcmd(1)  manual  page  for  debugging  usage


       snmp_config(5), read_config(3), snmpcmd(1).
