snmpd.internal - internal configuration of the Net-SNMP agent
The snmpd.conf(5) man page defines the syntax and behaviour of the main
configuration directives that can be used to control the operation of the
Net-SNMP agent, and the management information it provides.
However there are several other configuration directives (many of
which, though not all, start with a leading underscore) that are recognised
by the agent. These are typically used to retain configuration across agent
restarts, and are not intended for direct user access. This man page list
these directives, giving a brief indication of where they are used. For full
details - see the relevant source files. If you can't follow that source,
you probably shouldn't be fiddling with these directives!
- vacmView / vacmGroup / vacmAccess
- These directives are used to retain dynamically configured access control
- This directive is used to implement the advisory lock object
- psyslocation / psyscontact / psysname
- These directives are used to retain dynamically configured system
settings. They will be overridden by the corresponding sysLocation,
sysContact and sysName directives.
- This directive is used to retain the dynamically configured setting of
whether the agent should generate authenticationFailure traps. It will be
overridden by the corresponding authtrapenable directive.
- targetAddr / targetParams
- These directives are used to retain dynamically configured notification
- _mteE*Table, _mteOTable, _mteT*Table
- These directives are used to retain dynamically configured event, object
and monitor trigger settings.
- mteObjectsTable / mteTriggerTable
- These directives are for compatibility with the previous
- This directive is used to retain dynamically configured scheduled
snmpconf(1), snmpd.conf(5), snmp.conf(5), snmp_config(5), snmpd(8),
- exec2 / sh2 / execFix2
- These directives were defined by analogy with equivalent directives in the
previous ucd-snmp/extensible implementation. They are deprecated,
and should not be used.
