Dive into Python is an excellent get-you-going book that is also freely
Another good one is How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, Learning
with Python (http://openbookproject.net/thinkCSpy/).
As for SNMP, I have no direct experience, but a search of google shows
several candidates, including http://pysnmp.sourceforge.net/.
