snmp-bridge-mib (1)

Name

snmp-bridge-mib - provide Linux bridge information via SNMP

Synopsis

snmp-bridge-mib {bridge}

Description

SNMP-BRIDGE-MIB(1)                 Net-SNMP                 SNMP-BRIDGE-MIB(1)



NAME
       snmp-bridge-mib - provide Linux bridge information via SNMP

SYNOPSIS
       snmp-bridge-mib {bridge}

ARGUMENTS
       The following arguments are required:

       bridge
           The name of the Linux bridge for which you want to provide
           information via SNMP, e.g. br0.

DESCRIPTION
       The snmp-bridge-mib is an extension to net-snmp. It collects
       information about a bridge in a Linux system and exports them for query
       from other (remote) systems for management purposes.

CONFIGURATION:
       The preferred method of snmp-bridge-mib to attach to net-snmp is
       agentx. For this to work, you will have to add the following line to
       /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf,

               master agentx


       restart snmpd and start snmp-bridge-mib. snmp-bridge-mib will then
       connect to the running snmpd daemon.

       Another way of attaching snmp-bridge-mib to is to run it as an embedded
       perl module. You have to add

               perl do "path to location of snmp-bridge-mib"


       and restart snmpd.

EXAMPLE:
       Follow the instructions in this manpage and type

               perl /usr/bin/snmp-bridge-mib br0


       You'll get the following output:

                registering at .1.3.6.1.2.1.17
                running as a subagent.
                dot1qbridge agent started.
                NET-SNMP version 5.4.2.1 AgentX subagent connected


       Now it's time for a first test:

               $ export MIBS=+BRIDGE-MIB
               $ snmpwalk localhost .1.3.6.1.2.1.17


       The output produced should look like

BUGS
        1. snmp-bridge-mib currently only supports one bridge which has to be
           specified on the commandline.

        2. Not all elements of RFC 4188 because they are either not available
           in sysfs or difficult to extract from the existing data.
