Hey All,

I'm re-evaluating SNMP tools (primarily for trapping) right now for  
different deployments, CoLo and local network, and I'd like to settle  
on one to use long-term.  Anyone have any recommendations?  Loves/ 
Hate any in particular?

I'm not interested in a big app which does SNMP trapping, (Nagios/ 
NetSaint, Big Brother, etc...), used all that stuff in the past- not  
too exited.

I'm looking for simple shell tools and daemons, with clean, simple  
interfaces.  Bells and whistles are just going to be stripped off and  
tossed in the bitbucket...

So far I'm going to try Net-SNMP,


Which looks to have a lot of other tools wrapped around it, including  
this Python module,


Any good experiences, urls?
