Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a widely used protocol
for monitoring the health and welfare of network equipment
(eg. routers), computer equipment and even devices like
UPSs. Net-SNMP is a suite of applications used to implement SNMP v1,
SNMP v2c and SNMP v3 using both IPv4 and IPv6. The suite includes:

  * Command-line applications to:
    * retrieve information from an SNMP-capable device, either using
      single requests (snmpget, snmpgetnext), or multiple requests
      (snmpwalk, snmptable, snmpdelta).
    * manipulate configuration information on an SNMP-capable device
    * retrieve a fixed collection of information from an
      SNMP-capable device (snmpdf, snmpnetstat, snmpstatus).
    * convert between numerical and textual forms of MIB OIDs, and
      display MIB content and structure (snmptranslate).
  * A graphical MIB browser (tkmib), using Tk/perl.
  * A daemon application for receiving SNMP notifications
     (snmptrapd). Selected notifications can be logged (to syslog,
     the NT Event Log, or a plain text file), forwarded to another
     SNMP management system, or passed to an external application.
  * An extensible agent for responding to SNMP queries for
    management information (snmpd). This includes built-in support
    for a wide range of MIB information modules, and can be extended
    using dynamically loaded modules, external scripts and commands,
    and both the SNMP multiplexing (SMUX) and Agent Extensibility
    (AgentX) protocols.
  * A library for developing new SNMP applications, with both C and
    perl APIs.

 * The snmpd daemon does not provide much useful information.
   Installing it as a service under Cygwin is left as an exercise
   for the user.
