snmp cheatsheet

In my line of work, I come across SNMP default community strings quite a bit. I seem to always be searching for a reference on how to query various things – and also what I might change.

I’ve found the following page very useful:

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/webservers/httpservers/doc/v1319/9ac2mib.htm

Then an example query might be:

snmpget -v 2c -c private 70.37.128.238 sysDescr.0
