Project description

Shamelessly (ab)using NET-SNMP shell commands for a quick-and-dirty Python SNMP lib


  • I’m not fond of the pySNMP API
  • snimpy requires loading libffi-dev and libsmi-dev (i.e. root privs) on the system
  • It’s fast enough


Be sure you have MIB files loaded on your system. You can download them from Cisco’s FTP site like this… wget

from shellsnmp.Poller import SNMP

snmp = SNMP(community='public', host='')
status, time = snmp.bulkwalk(mibfile='/path/to/',

Note that only bulkwalk() has been implemented at this time.


pip install shellsnmp
