    The following Wireshark page provides a downloadable SNMP trace file
    (b6300a.cap):

    http://wiki.wireshark.org/SampleCapt...444443b8d6a9c6

    It might provide the insight you are looking for.

    It contains several get-requests and get-responses of different lengths
    depending on the variable you are GETting.

    It's a trick question: simple SNMP GET requests are done via UDP
    not TCP.

    But putting that aside: there is no standard size, as the
    length of the packet is going to depend upon the length of the OID.
    The question also does not specify which SNMP protocol is being used.
    And SNMP Community Strings are not fixed size fields.
