SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a protocol used for network
management. The NET-SNMP project includes various SNMP tools: an extensible
agent, an SNMP library, tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP
agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat
command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl mib browser. This package contains the
snmpd and snmptrapd daemons, documentation, etc.
You will probably also want to install the net-snmp-utils package, which
contains NET-SNMP utilities.
