Configuring Net-SNMP

Is there any to configure Net-SNMP to print the IP of the device in each returned line of a query?

For example, the following is the current default return when I query the ifAlias of a switch:

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12013 = STRING: 228A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12014 = STRING: 228B

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12015 = STRING: 035B

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12016 = STRING: 053A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12017 = STRING: 029A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12018 = STRING: 125A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12019 = STRING: 051A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12020 = STRING: 203A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12021 = STRING: 253B

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12022 = STRING: 212A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12023 = STRING: 170B

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12024 = STRING: 253A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12025 = STRING: 187A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12026 = STRING: 064A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12027 = STRING: 066A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12028 = STRING: 252A

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12029 = STRING: 187B

IF-MIB::ifAlias.12030 = STRING: 191A

However, I was wondering if the output of this query can be configured to include the management IP address of the switch in each and every line of the above output.

There isn't an output option for net-snmp that will do this. You will need to buffer the output in a script or program then print out the lines with the added content.

That is what I thought. I have figured out within DOS out to buffer the output to a notepad text file. Now the next step will be to figure out how to write a script to add the content.
