--host HOST

Run an online inventory against given host. Multiple usage allowed, for multiple hosts.

--port PORT[,PORT2]

List of ports to try, defaults to: 161

Set it to 161,16100 to first try on default port and then on 16100.


List of protocols to try, defaults to: udp/ipv4

Possible values are: udp/ipv4,udp/ipv6,tcp/ipv4,tcp/ipv6

--file FILE

Run an offline inventory against snmpwalk output, stored in given file. Multiple usage allowed, for multiple files.

--communty STRING

Use given string as SNMP community (assume SNMPv1)

--credentials STRING

Use given string as SNMP credentials specification. This specification is a comma-separated list of key:value authentication parameters, such as:

  • version:2c,community:public
  • version:3,username:admin,authprotocol:sha,authpassword:s3cr3t
  • etc.
--timeout TIME

Set SNMP timeout, in seconds.

--type TYPE

Force device type, instead of relying on automatic identification. Currently allowed types:

--threads count

Use given number of inventory threads.


Output server-agent control messages, in addition to inventory result itself.


Turn the debug mode on. Multiple usage allowed, for additional verbosity.


Run an inventory against a network device, using SNMP version 2c authentication:

    $> fusioninventory-netinventory --host \
    --credentials version:2c,community:public

Run an inventory against a network device, using SNMP version 3 authentication and forcing its type:

    $> fusioninventory-netinventory --host my.device --type NETWORKING \
    --credentials version:3,username:admin,authprotocol:sha,authpassword:s3cr3t
