Pure Python SNMP implementation

Project Description


Jump right in with the cookbook

Quick Info

A pure Python implementation for Python 3.3+ of SNMP without any external dependencies (neither MIBs or libsnmp).

SNMP in itself is simple and well defined. A bit convoluted, but simple. MIB parsing however complicates the code-base and is technically not required. They add typing information and variables and give names to OIDs. All existing libraries have a direct or indirect dependency on libsnmp. With all the advantages and disadvantages.

The aim of this project is to focus on SNMP in itself and provide a very simple API. Instead of implementing ASN.1 parsing, the SNMP related ASN.1 and X.690 information is hard-coded (keeping in mind that all that’s hard-coded is well defined).

It is of course possible to wrap this package in another package adding MIB parsing and processing. This is, and will be however out of the scope of this project!
