       snmptable - retrieve an SNMP table and display it in tabular form

       snmptable  [COMMON  OPTIONS] [-Cb] [-CB]	[-Ch] [-CH] [-Ci] [-Cf STRING]

       snmptable is an SNMP application	that repeatedly	uses the SNMP  GETNEXT
       or  GETBULK requests to query for information on	a network entity.  The
       parameter TABLE-OID must	specify	an SNMP	table.

       AGENT identifies	a target SNMP agent, which is instrumented to  monitor
       the  given objects.  At its simplest, the AGENT specification will con-
       sist of a hostname or an	IPv4 address.  In this situation, the  command
       will  attempt  communication with the agent, using UDP/IPv4 to port 161
       of the given target host. See snmpcmd(1)	for a full list	of the	possi-
       ble formats for AGENT.

	       Please  see snmpcmd(1) for a list of possible values for	COMMON
	       OPTIONS as well as their	descriptions.

       -Cb     Display only a brief heading. Any common	prefix	of  the	 table
	       field names will	be deleted.

       -CB     Do not use GETBULK requests to retrieve data, only GETNEXT.

       -Cc CHARS
	       Print table in columns of CHARS characters width.

       -Cf STRING
	       The string STRING is used to separate table columns.  With this
	       option, each table entry	will be	printed	in compact form,  just
	       with  the  string  given	to separate the	columns	(useful	if you
	       want to import it into a	database).  Otherwise it is printed in
	       nicely aligned columns.

       -Ch     Display only the	column headings.

       -CH     Do not display the column headings.

       -Ci     This  option  prepends  the  index  of the entry	to all printed

       -Cl     Left justify the	data in	each column.

       -Cr REPEATERS
	       For GETBULK requests,  REPEATERS	 specifies  the	 max-repeaters
	       value  to  use.	 For GETNEXT requests, REPEATERS specifies the
	       number of entries to retrieve at	a time.

       -Cw WIDTH
	       Specifies the width of the lines	when the table is printed.  If
	       the lines will be longer, the table will	be printed in sections
	       of at most WIDTH	characters.  If	WIDTH is less than the	length
	       of  the	contents  of  a	single column, then that single	column
	       will still be printed.

       Note that snmptable REQUIRES  an	argument specifying the	agent to query
       and  exactly  one  OID  argument, as described in the snmpcmd(1)	manual
       page.  This OID must be that of a MIB table object.

       $ snmptable -v 2c -c public localhost at.atTable

       The test	for TABLE-OID actually specifying a table is rather heuristic.
       Note also that the test requires	the defining MIB file to be loaded.
