SNMP Protocol Operation
SNMP Versions: SNMPv1-3
CLI Utility: snmpget
Protocol List:

The GET command requests a list of exact instances from a remote entity. If a requested object does not exist, an error condition is returned explaining why it may not exist.

The expected returned PDU will be a RESPONSE, although a REPORT may be issued as well in certain SNMPv3 circumstances.
