glpi-netdiscovery can be used to run a network discovery task without a GLPI server.


--first|--host ADDRESS

Set the first IP address of the network range to scan.

--last ADDRESS

Set the last IP address of the network range to scan.

If not set, it is set with the value of the --first or --host option.

--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 discovery against snmpwalk output, stored in the given file.

If no host or first ip is provided, ip is set to emulate ip scan.

--community 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.

--entity ENTITY

Set GLPI entity.

--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 a discovery against a network range, using SNMP version 1:

$> glpi-netdiscovery --first --last --community public

Run a discovery against a network range, using multiple SNMP credentials:

$> glpi-netdiscovery --first --last \
--credentials version:2c,community:public \
--credentials version:3,username:admin,authprotocol:sha,authpassword:s3cr3t

Emulate discovery using a snmpwalk file:

$> glpi-netdiscovery --file device.walk
