Re: SNMP-server view

Per Cisco, it a means of controlling snmp access

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk362/technologies_tech_note09186a0080094489.shtml

"The Setup SNMP view command can block the user with only access to limited Management Information Base (MIB). By default, there is no SNMP view entry exists. This command is configured at the global configuration mode and first introduced in Cisco IOS Software version 10.3. It works similar to access-list in that if you have any SNMP View on certain MIB trees, every other tree is denied inexplicably. However, the sequence is not important and it goes through the entire list for a match before it stops."

A good link for snmp
