I am using an snmpget request to read an extend mib on a remote client, but the request fails.
I have a timeout because the snmpget must read a .txt file which seems to be too long for it. (it works when I remove lines).

Is there an option in snmpget to do an "auto-reduce" used in plugin packs?


The commad is: 

snmpget -t 20 -v3 -u user -l authPriv -a SHA -A password -x AES -X password -Oqv NET-SNMP-EXTEND-MIB::nsExtendOutputFull.\InterfacesErrors\”


thank you

maybe? 😊



Auto reduce SNMP request size in case of SNMP errors (By
default, the divisor is 2).
