main difference is the set of supported MIBs.

In general net-snmp supports more MIBs than bsnmpd.

E. g. BEGEMOT-PF-MIB supported only by bsnmpd and useful for monitoring pf(4),
UCD-SNMP-MIB supported only by net-snmp and useful for monitoring CPU load
(ssCpuRaw* counters).

Is there any other documentation to bsnmpd besides the one man page?
I'm trying to figure how to configure the daemon (first task is stop
it from listening on *:*), but besides the man page and few comments
in /etc/snmpd.config there is no other information that I can find.

I cant speak to the documentation, but this seems to limit it to listening on a single address:


# open standard SNMP ports
begemotSnmpdPortStatus. = 1
