snmp# alias  [name [options]]

The snmp alias command creates aliases for a list of configuration options. This can be used to define short names for complex session configurations and it allows sharing. An alias defined by the snmp alias command can be substituted when configuring an SNMP session by using the -alias session option.

The snmp alias command invoked without arguments returns the list of all known alias names. If invoked with an alias name, the list of configuration options associated with this alias is returned. Invoking the snmp alias command with an alias name and an options list associates the list of configuration options contained in options with the alias name.

Below is an example that creates a SNMPv1 alias private which defines a SNMPv1 community string pair. The aliases hub1 and hub2 define configuration options used to access two hubs. The aliases hub1/private and hub2/private combine these aliases. It is now possible to update the private community string for both hubs by changing the private alias. Nesting alias definitions as shown below allows building a flexible configuration scheme.

snmp alias private “-read guiness -write andechs”
snmp alias hub1 “-address -window 2 -delay 10”
snmp alias hub2 “-address -timeout 10”
snmp alias hub1/private “-alias hub1 -alias private”
snmp alias hub2/private “-alias hub1 -alias private”
