snmp question

in the command:

snmpget -v1 -u monitor -c public system.sysUpTime.0

what do the -v1 -u and -c options mean?

i think v1 stands for the snmp version?

cheers for any help

-c community
Set the community string for SNMPv1/v2c transactions. Overrides
the defcommunity token in the snmp.conf file.
-u secName
Set the securityName used for authenticated SNMPv3 messages.
Overrides the defSecurityName token in the snmp.conf file.

no idea what they are blabbering on about? -u maybe sounds like a username?
