TNM SNMP Options
Options Description
-address address Defines the network address of the peer entity.
-port port Defines the UDP port which is used by the peer entity to receive messages
-version number Sselects the version used by a session.
-read community v1 and v2c generator or responder sessions; It defines the read community string which is used when invoking  retrieval operations.
-write community v1 and v2c generator or responder sessions; It defines the write community string which is used when invoking  set operations. Default = "private".
-notify community v1 and v2c listener or notifier sessions; It defines the community string which is used when invoking  trap or inform operations. Default = "public".
-user name v3 sessions; It is used to define the v3 user name. The default user name is the value of the global tnm(user) variable, which defaults to the login name of the underlying operating system.
-authPassWord password v3 sessions; It is used to specify the authentication password of the user. The password is automatically converted into a key by applying the password2key algorithm of RFC 2274. The key is also automatically localized once the engineID of the SNMP peer entity is known. Note that the application should take care to keep the passwords safe from unauthorized access.
-privPassWord password v3 sessions. It is used to specify the password of the user. The password is automatically converted into a key by applying the password2key algorithm of RFC 2274. The key is also automatically localized once the engineID of the SNMP peer entity is known. Note that the application should take care to keep the passwords safe from unauthorized access. 
-readSecurity level v3 sessions. It allows to specify the security level for read operations. Legal values:
  • noAuth/noPriv
  • md5/noPriv
  • md5/des
  • sha/noPriv
  • sha/des
  • Note, not all values are fully supported in the current implementation. 
    -writeSecurity level v3 sessions. It allows to specify the security level for SNMP write operations. Legal values
    • noAuth/noPriv
    • md5/noPriv
    • md5/des
    • sha/noPriv
    • sha/des
    Note, not all values are fully supported in the current implementation.
    -notifySecurity level v3 sessions. It allows to specify the security level for notifications. Legal values 
    • noAuth/noPriv
    • md5/noPriv
    • md5/des
    • sha/noPriv
    • sha/des
    Note, not all values are fully supported in the current implementation.
    -context context The -context option is specific to SNMPv3 sessions. It allows to select between multiple contexts. The default context is the empty string "".
    -engineID id v3 sessions. It is used to get or set the engineID for messages. The default is "". Note, the engineID value might change during protocol operations when doing auto-discovery.
    -timeout time The -timeout option defines the time the session will wait for a response. The default is 5 seconds. This option only applies for unreliable transports like UDP.Z
    -retries number The -retries option defines how many times a request is retransmitted during the timeout interval. The default = 3 reitres. This option only applies for unreliable transports like UDP.
    -delay delay The -delay option can be used to define a delay in milliseconds between two messages send by the protocol engine. This can be used to avoid network congestion problems. The default is 0 milliseconds. This option only applies for transports without congestion control like UDP.
    -window size The -window option allows to define a window which limits the number of active asynchronous requests. This can be used to prevent fast scripts to flood an agent or an intermediate system with asynchronous messages. The Tnm extension queues requests internally so that no more than size synchronous requests are on the wire. Setting the size to 0 turns the windowing mechanism off. This option only applies for transports without congestion control like UDP. 
    -alias name The -alias option substitutes this option with the configuration options contained in the alias identified by name. You can define configuration option aliases with the snmp alias command. It is possible to refer to other -alias options within an -alias option. See the description of the snmp alias command below for an example.
    -tags tagList The -tags option is used to tag SNMP sessions. Tags are a convenient way to group SNMP sessions that perform a single task or which belong a specific network element. Tags are also convenient to relate SNMP sessions to network map objects and/or management functions.
