The optional argument -f is used to specify a file containing the mosy(ADMN) and post_mosy(ADMN) compiled list of object names and their numeric Object Identifiers, in addition to the objects in the standard MIB. This allows the user to dynamically augment the number of objects that can be recognized by the management utility.
It should be noted that since
the function is GET, as opposed to a
GET-NEXT, the variable must be
fully qualified for the request to be successful. For
getone suzzy public sysDescr.0 ifNumber.0
would return the variables sysDescr.0 and
ifNumber.0 but the call
getone suzzy public system
would return an error from the entity since ``system'' is
not a fully qualified SNMP variable.
getone -f cisco.objects cisco_box public romId.0 domainName.0
would return the variables romId.0 and domainName.0.
