SNMPv1: Simple Network Management Protocol version 1
Simple Network Management Protocol version 1 (SNMPv1) is a simple request/response protocol. The network management system issues a request to the managed devices that return responses. This behavior is implemented by using one of four protocol operations: Get, GetNext, Set and Trap. The Get operation is used by the NMS to retrieve the value of one or more object instances from an agent. If the agent responding to the Get operation cannot provide values for all the object instances in a list, it does not provide any values.
