snmpdSimple Network Management Protocol daemon


snmpd [-dNnv] [-D macro=value] [-f file] [-r path]


snmpd is a daemon which implements the SNMP protocol.
The options are as follows:
-D macro=value
Define macro to be set to value on the command line. Overrides the definition of macro in the configuration file.
Do not daemonize and log to stderr.
-f file
Use file as the configuration file, instead of the default /etc/snmpd.conf.
Show numeric OID values instead of their symbolic names.
Configtest mode. Only check the configuration file for validity.
-r path
Open a second, restricted, control socket that snmpctl(8) can use. Only trap requests are allowed on this socket.
Produce more verbose output.
