A pure Python implementation of the Simple Network Management Protocol

Project description


A pure Python implementation of the Simple Network Management Protocol as a Python library.


I wrote this library many years ago because I was frustrated by PySNMP and something else that I can't recall, but that used an overly theoretical CompSci-type implementation of ASN.1 entities mapped directed to a deep class hierarchy, which made it really slow.

The PySNMP project has now utterly eclipsed the functionality of libsnmp, so you probably want to use it instead.

The code is here mostly for historical reference, and so people who keep downloading it from PyPI for some unknown reasons can fork and update the code if they so wish.


libsnmp is available in PyPI, so you can just use:

pip install libsnmp

if you want. Or use:

python install

There are a bunch of example scripts in the main directory.
