Nelsnmp HostInfo

HostInfo is a feature of Nelsnmp which allows you to retrieve vendor, operating system and version information from an SNMP enabled device.

Nelmon uses this feature in the nm_check_version plugin in order to provide security compliance monitoring for Nagios in terms of which images are running on a network device.

HostInfo is also used by the Ansible module snmp_device_version.
