SNMP::Info::Layer3::F5 - SNMP Interface to F5 network devices.


Eric Miller


 # Let SNMP::Info determine the correct subclass for you. 
 my $f5 = new SNMP::Info(
                          AutoSpecify => 1,
                          Debug       => 1,
                          DestHost    => 'myswitch',
                          Community   => 'public',
                          Version     => 2
    or die "Can't connect to DestHost.\n";

 my $class      = $f5->class();
 print "SNMP::Info determined this device to fall under subclass : $class\n";


Abstraction subclass for F5 network devices.

For speed or debugging purposes you can call the subclass directly, but not after determining a more specific class using the method above.

 my $f5 = new SNMP::Info::Layer3::F5(...);

Globals imported from SNMP::Info::Layer3

See documentation in "GLOBALS" in SNMP::Info::Layer3 for details.


These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.



Returns reference to the map between IID and physical port.



Returns reference to hash. Maps port operational duplexes to IIDs.


Returns a mapping between ifIndex and the default VLAN.


Returns reference to hash of arrays: key = ifIndex, value = array of VLAN IDs.

  my $interfaces = $f5->interfaces();
  my $vlans      = $f5->i_vlan_membership();
  foreach my $iid (sort keys %$interfaces) {
    my $port = $interfaces->{$iid};
    my $vlan = join(',', sort(@{$vlans->{$iid}}));
    print "Port: $port VLAN: $vlan\n";

Returns VLAN IDs


Human-entered name for vlans.


Returns the human set port name if exists.


Returns 'ethernetCsmacd' for each ifIndex.
