Hello, experts,

I was ordered some small program as

 - Using Net-SNMP and "exec" in snmpd.conf
 - answer for "snmpget ..snip.. .xxx.123"
 - above 123 is pid(process id) and variable
 - exec program can be any language(sh,perl,c)
 - exec calling program works with pid
 - exec calling program returns like
   ".xxx.123 = 28765 Integer" (28765 is example)

I can program with C, but I'm newbie in snmp.
I read documents about snmpd.conf, but it says about only fixed parameter.

I need experts help, Thanks

'pass' is better suited for this than 'exec'

something like this should work
#!/bin/sh

OIDBASE=.1.3.6.1.4.1.789

CMD=$1
OID=$2

if [ -z "$OID" ]; then
        echo "this is a snmpd 'pass' plugin"
        exit 1
fi

if [ $CMD != "-g" ]; then
        exit
fi

PID=${OID##.1.3.6.1.4.1.789.}
RESULT=`cat /proc/$PID/cmdline | wc -c`

echo $OID
echo integer
echo $RESULT

Thanks svs,

But still don't know about how to write pass statement in snampd,conf

I wrote like this,

pass .1.3.6.1.4.1.789 /bin/sh /usr/local/passtest.sh

And try

# snmpwalk -v 2c -c private localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.789.999
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.789.999 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

Please advice .. (T_T)
