What have been people's experiences with snmpy? The last time I looked
at it (over a year ago), I had troubles building it (on linux) because
it had dependencies on an oldish version of net-snmp.
I do a lot of SNMP work, but have never really found a good python SNMP
package. I looked at PySNMP (the pure python one) but never managed to
get that to work either. It also just seems wrong to be doing all the
low-level BER and packet building stuff in Python.
