I had already found it. The package was snmp:

sparky:~# aptitude show snmp
Package: snmp
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 5.2.3-7etch2
Priority: optional
Section: net
Maintainer: Net-SNMP Packaging Team
<pkg-net-snmp-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uncompressed Size: 1307k
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1), libsnmp9 (>= 5.2.3)
Recommends: perl-modules
Description: NET SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Apps
 The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) provides a framework for
 the exchange of management information between agents (servers) and
 clients.  The NET SNMP applications are a collection of command line
 clients for issuing SNMP requests to agents.

Tags: interface::commandline, network::service, protocol::snmp,
role::program, scope::utility

Now I'm looking for documentation about SNMP to see how to make certain
type of consultations. Some document that you can recommend to me? For
example, to know the statius of any interface and protocol. For the
status of the interface I believe that it would be ifOperStatus.x. Is it
correct? But I didn't find the form to monitor the state of the
protocol, yet.

Thanks for your reply, Thomas.
