snmp.conf(4)                     File Formats                     snmp.conf(4)



NAME
       snmp.conf - configuration file for the Net-SNMP applications

SYNOPSIS
       snmp.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  snmp.conf  defines  how  the  Net-SNMP applications operate.
       Tokens that can be put in the file are described in the DIRECTIVES sec-
       tion below.

       If  you  are  storing  sensitive  information,  such as passphrases, in
       snmp.conf, make sure you make the file readable only by user.

       Before modifying snmp.conf, make sure to read the snmp_config(4) manual
       page,  which describes the effects of the Net-SNMP configuration files,
       where they are located, and how they all work together.

DIRECTIVES
       The snmp.conf file supports the following directives:

       mibdirs (mib-dirs| +mib-dirs)

           Look for text MIBs to parse in the colon-separated list of directo-
           ries.  If  the directive value starts with a plus sign, it prepends
           this list to the default directory list compiled into the  applica-
           tion.  Note  that the value specified here can be overridden by the
           MIBDIRS environment variable.



       mibs (mib-tokens| +mib-tokens)

           Specifies a colon-separated list of MIB tokens that represent  tex-
           tual  MIB  files  that are to be found and parsed. If the directive
           value starts with a plus sign, it prepends this list to the default
           MIB  token  list compiled into the application. The special keyword
           of ALL forces all MIBs files found to be read. Note that the  value
           specified here can be overridden by the MIBS environment variable.



       mibfile file

           Specifies  a  text  MIB  file to read and parse, in addition to the
           list read from the MIBs token. Note that the value  specified  here
           can be overridden by the MIBFILES environment variable.



       persistentDir directory

           The directory where snmpd and snmptrapd store their persistent data
           files.



       defaultPort port

           The default port number that  all  SNMP  applications  and  daemons
           should use.



       defVersion ( 1 | 2c | 3 )

           The default SNMP version to use. The default value is 3.



       defCommunity string

           The default SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c community string to use. The default
           value is the empty string, "".



       defSecurityName string

           The default SNMPv3 USM security name you want  to  use  for  SNMPv3
           requests.



       defContext string

           The default SNMPv3 context name you want to use.



       defPassphrase string
       defAuthPassphrase string
       defPrivPassphrase string

           The  default  SNMPv3  USM passphrase(s) to use. If it is specified,
           defPassphrase is used for  both  authentication  and  privacy  pass
           phrases.





       defAuthType MD5 | SHA

           The  SNMPv3  USM  authentication  type to use. The default value is
           MD5.



       defPrivType DES

           The SNMPv3 USM privacy type to use. Currently, DES is the only pos-
           sible value.



       defSecurityLevel noAuthNoPriv | authNoPriv | authPriv

           The SNMPv3 default security level to use. The default is authPriv.



       showMibErrors ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Determines whether to display text MIB parsing errors when commands
           are run.



       strictCommentTerm ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Determines whether parsing of MIBs should be strict  about  comment
           termination. A double hyphen ("--") terminates a comment if this is
           true. Many MIBs have broken comments in them, hence this option.



       mibAllowUnderline ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Allow underline characters in MIBs (ordinarily illegal).



       mibWarningLevel integerValue

           Specifies the minimum warning level of the warnings printed by  the
           MIB parser.



       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 )

           Equivalent to -OE.



       quickPrinting ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Equivalent to -Oq.



       dontPrintUnits ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Equivalent to -OU.



       printHexText ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Equivalent to -OT.



       suffixPrinting ( 0 | 1 | 2 )

           If  the  value  is  1,  this directive is equivalent to -Os. If the
           value is 2, it is equivalent to -OS.



       oidOutputFormat ( 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6)

           Maps -O options as follows:


           -Os=1
           -OS=2
           -Of=3
           -On=4
           -Ou=5

           The value 6 has no matching -O option. It suppresses output.



       extendedIndex ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Equivalent to -OX.



       noRangeCheck ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Disables the validation of  values  that  is  done  by  snmpset(1M)
           before issuing the request to the agent. Equivalent to -Ir.



       noDisplayHint ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Disables  the  use of DISPLAY-HINT information when parsing indices
           and values to set. Equivalent to -Ih.



       dumpPacket ( 1 | yes | true | 0 | no | false )

           Determines whether commands should dump packets by default.



       doDebugging ( 1 | 0 )

           Turns on debugging for all applications run if set to 1.



       debugTokens token[,token...]

           Specifies the debugging tokens that should be displayed.  See  snm-
           pcmd(1M) for debugging usage details.
