cups-snmp(8)                 (CUPS)                  cups-snmp(8)

     NAME
          snmp - cups snmp backend (deprecated)

     SYNOPSIS
          /usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname
          /usr/libexec/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname
          lpinfo -v --include-schemes snmp

     DESCRIPTION
          The DEPRECATED CUPS SNMP backend provides legacy discovery
          and identification of network printers using SNMPv1.  When
          used for discovery through the scheduler, the backend will
          list all printers that respond to a broadcast SNMPv1 query
          with the "public" community name.  Additional queries are
          then sent to printers that respond in order to determine the
          correct device URI, make and model, and other information
          needed for printing.

          In the first form, the SNMP backend is run directly by the
          user to look up the device URI and other information when
          you have an IP address or hostname.  This can be used for
          programs that need to configure print queues where the user
          has supplied an address but nothing else.

          In the second form, the SNMP backend is run indirectly using
          the lpinfo(8) command.  The output provides all printers
          detected via SNMP on the configured broadcast addresses.
          Note: no broadcast addresses are configured by default.

     ENVIRONMENT
          The DebugLevel value can be overridden using the
          CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL environment variable.  The MaxRunTime value
          can be overridden using the CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment
          variable.

     FILES
          The SNMP backend reads the /etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration
          file, if present, to set the default broadcast address, com-
          munity name, and logging level.

     NOTES
          The CUPS SNMP backend is deprecated and will no longer be
          supported in a future version of CUPS.

     CONFORMING TO
          The CUPS SNMP backend uses the information from the Host,
          Printer, and Port Monitor MIBs along with some vendor pri-
          vate MIBs and intelligent port probes to determine the cor-
          rect device URI and make and model for each printer.
