Description

The SNMPwalk utility is a method that is used to test the connectivity.

For example:

If the host system does not collect information from a NetApp storage system, this utility can be used to verify if there are no network issues preventing communication, and that the storage system does indeed respond to queries.

The SNMPwalk utility is an SNMP application that uses SNMP GETNEXT requests to query a network entity for a tree of information. SNMP queries are requests for information that are sent to the storage system, and the system responds with the appropriate information.

The SNMPwalk utility should be used to test SNMP communication. Run the utility from the same system where OnCommand System Manager is installed.
