SNMP walk is a feature of the Simple Network Management Protocol that allows the user of an SNMP manager to obtain a comprehensive list of the information provided by an SNMP agent. SNMP walk works by simply issuing a series of GETNEXT requests, and displaying the returned information. Some SNMP managers support SNMP walk filtering by allowing the user to specify an OID (Object IDentifier) subtree to walk.
