How to send a "show" command using SNMP

Leo Laohoo

To all you SNMP script experts,

By using SNMP, how do I send a "show" command to a switch?

The command is:  sh proc cpu sorted | redirect tftp://<IP Address>/filename.txt

You could use a really nasty hack to do this.  Create a config file with the contents:

do show proc cpu sorted | redirect tftp://x.x.x.x/filename.txt

end

Then use the CISCO-CONFIG-COPY-MIB to copy this file into the device's running config.  At the moment the config is transfered, the show command should execute.  Be careful doing this as any interactive commands you put in the config snippet file will lock the running configuration.

For documentation on how to use the CONFIG-COPY-MIB, see
