hpsnmpd(1M)							   hpsnmpd(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     hpsnmpd - SNMP HP-UX MIB subagent

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/etc/hpsnmpd [	-d debug ] [ -l	loglevel ] [ -u	namelist ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     hpsnmpd is	a daemon for the Simple	Network	Management Protocol (SNMP) as
     specified in Internet RFC 1157, and supports a subset of the HP-UX
     enterprise	MIB.  The daemon, called the SNMP agent, can be	configured to
     run from the network startup script at boot time by the command chkconfig
     snmpd on or started from the command line.	 You must be superuser (root)
     to	run hpsnmpd.  Hpsnmpd acts as a	subagent to the	SGI master agent snmpd
     or	the Peer networks encapsulator peer_encaps.  The hpsnmpd subagent must
     be	listed in the file /etc/snmpd.remote.conf for the snmpd	daemon to
     forward to	it, and	in /etc/peer_encaps_config for the Peer	networks
     encapsulator to forward to	it.

     hpsnmpd checks that each incoming request is authorized.  The file
     /etc/snmpd.auth is	used to	specify	sets of	hosts and SNMP communities
     that have either get or set privileges.  Entries in the file have the

	  accept    hostname:community/operation ...
	  reject    hostname:community/operation ...

     where the wildcard	character * can	stand for all hosts or all
     communities.  A comma can be used to list multiple	hosts or communities.

     For example, suppose hpsnmpd were to accept get and set requests from the
     host iris1	or iris2 with the community sgi	and accept get requests	from
     any host with the community public.  The /etc/snmpd.auth entries would be

	  accept    iris1:sgi
	  accept    iris2:sgi
	  accept    *:public/get

     or	equivalently, on one line

	  accept    iris1,iris2:sgi *:public/get

   Options    [Toc]    [Back]
     -d	debug	     Set debugging modes of hpsnmpd.  Possible values for
		     debug are dump, which will	hex dump incoming and outgoing
		     packets; input, which will	display	decoded	incoming
		     packets; output, which will display decoded outgoing
		     packets; and foreground, which makes the daemon run in
		     the foreground and	log messages to	the standard output.
		     The dump, input, and output flags all imply the
		     foreground	flag.

     -l	loglevel     Control the level of messages produced by hpsnmpd.	 The
		     levels are	those used by syslog(3B).  The value of
		     loglevel is the text string for that level.  The default
		     loglevel is error.	 To see	warnings, the loglevel would
		     be	warning.  The acceptable values	for loglevel can be
		     found in /usr/include/sys/syslog.h.

     -u	namelist     Specify a system namelist.	 The default is	/unix.
