/etc/snmpd.conf

Default SNMP configuration file

Name:

/etc/snmpd.conf

Description:

The snmpd.conf file provides some configuration information for the snmpd agent. The agent searches for the location of the file, in this order:

  1. the file named in the SNMPCONFIGFILE environment variable
  2. /nodecfg/node_name/etc/snmpd.conf, where node_name is the value of the CS_NODENAME configuration string (see getconf and setconf)
  3. /etc/snmpd.conf

For more information, see read_main_configuration_file() in the Library Reference.

Here's an example snmpd.conf file:

## /etc/snmpd.conf:

## location of the config files:
party.conf:   /etc/party.conf
acl.conf:     /etc/acl.conf
view.conf:    /etc/view.conf
context.conf: /etc/context.conf

## public- and private-community string (for SNMP V1):
## default is "public" and "private"
public:       newpublic
private:      newprivate

## the entry of system.sysContact and system.sysLocation:
system contact:  sysadmin
system location: systemlocation

## system.sysName is per default determined from the hostname:
system name:     snmpdhost

## trap sink ipaddress (trap destination) and community string.
## authentraps contains the value of snmpEnableAuthenTraps;
## (default is `no'' == disabled).
trap sink:       tcp_ip
trap community:  public
authentraps:     no
