SNMP is a standard protocol for network monitoring and network devices management. Almost all active network devices support SNMP. Moreover, SNMP is supported by the majority of operational systems and by many network applications.

SnmpGet allows you to monitor networks using SNMP. Monitoring is realized by reading SNMP variables from a remote network device. The variables can be of various types and may represent a wide range of information, such as current parameters of the configuration, the status of operations execution, and information on possible errors and failures.

The list of available variables depends on the network device itself or on the SNMP software. You can find the list of variables, available for reading in certain situations, with the help of a separate tool SnmpWalk. Some variables are available for writing. By changing their values with SnmpSet, you can change certain parameters of a network device configuration or perform some actions.

SnmpGet it is a command-line tool. It is easy to use in scripts, which allow for the automation of much routine work of network administrators. This tool supports IPv4 as well as IPv6, so it will not cause any problems while you are upgrading your network infrastructure. Moreover, SnmpGet supports a regular version of the SNMPv1/SNMPv2c protocol and also a safer SNMPv3 which enables you to use this tool without risking the violation of corporate safety policies.
