The scli package provides a small and efficient command line utility to monitor and configure SNMP-aware network nodes. The scli package is based on the SNMP protocol. New versions (higher than 0.3.0) utilize a MIB compiler called smidump to generate C stub code. No SNMP knowledge is required in order to extend the scli programs with new features. The scli package can return query results either as simple, but nicely formatted text (friendly to human readers), or as XML-tagged strings (friendly to automatic post-processing software).
