    I don't know the specific SUSE daemon name, but try looking in /etc/init.d/ for *snmp* services. For example, on my Fedora box, the SNMP daemon is at /etc/init.d/snmpd, so knowing that, I could:

    Disable auto-start at boot time with chkconfig, e.g.:

    chkconfig snmpd off
    Manually shut it down with:
    /etc/init.d/snmpd stop
