       snmpdf - display disk space usage on a network entity via SNMP

       snmpdf [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Cu] AGENT

       snmpdf  is  simply  a  networked verison of the typical df command.  It
       checks the disk space on the remote  machine  by	 examining  the	 HOST-
       RESOURCES-MIB's	hrStorageTable	or  the	 UCD-SNMP-MIB's	 dskTable.  By
       default, the hrStorageTable is preferred as it typically contains  more
       information.   However,	the  -Cu  argument  can be passed to snmpdf to
       force the usage of the dskTable.

       AGENT identifies a target SNMP agent, which is instrumented to  monitor
       the  gievn objects.  At its simplest, the AGENT specification will con-
       sist of a hostname or an IPv4 address.  In this situation, the  command
       will  attempt  communication with the agent, using UDP/IPv4 to port 161
       of the given target host. See the snmpcmd(1) manual  page  for  a  full
       list of the possible formats for AGENT.

       See  the snmpd.conf(5) manual page on setting up the dskTable using the
       disk directive in the snmpd.conf file.

	       Please see snmpcmd(1) for a list of possible values for	COMMON
	       OPTIONS as well as their descriptions.

       -Cu     Forces  the command to use dskTable in mib UCD-SNMP-MIB instead
	       of the default to determine the storage information. Generally,
	       the  default use of hrStorageTable in mib HOST-RESOURCES-MIB is
	       preferred because it typically contains more information.
