We are trying to monitor our servers mainly with SNMP. Due to performance reasons we are changing this from single requests to snmp-bulk-requests (as allowed in SNMP v2c).
In theory (at least to my knowledge) it should be possible to request several branches/values in a single bulk-request, so the number of tcp-sessions needed for this will be minimal.
We are currently using CentOS 5 for this - the high-level-command in question is
snmpbulkwalk - but this only seems to be able to request a single branch (i.e. subtree) at a time.
Am I wrong in theory, or is there a high-level-command out there that can do what I want?
