SNMP::Info::Layer2::Aruba is a subclass of SNMP::Info that provides an interface to Aruba wireless switches. The Aruba platform utilizes intelligent wireless switches which control thin access points. The thin access points themselves are unable to be polled for end station information.

This class emulates bridge functionality for the wireless switch. This enables end station MAC addresses collection and correlation to the thin access point the end station is using for communication.

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

 my $aruba = new SNMP::Info::Layer2::Aruba(...);

Inherited Classes


Required MIBs

Inherited Classes' MIBs

See SNMP::Info for its own MIB requirements.

See SNMP::Info::Bridge for its own MIB requirements.


These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP


Returns model type. Cross references $aruba->id() with product IDs in the Aruba MIB.


Returns 'aruba'


Returns 'airos'


Returns the software version extracted from sysDescr



Returns 00000011. Class emulates Layer 2 functionality for Thin APs through proprietary MIBs.


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



Returns reference to map of IIDs to Interface index.

Extends ifIndex to support thin APs as device interfaces.


Returns reference to map of IIDs to ports. Thin APs are implemented as device interfaces. The thin AP MAC address is used as the port identifier.


Interface name. Returns (ifName) for Ethernet interfaces and (apLocation) for thin AP interfaces.


Simulates bridge MIB by returning reference to a hash containing the index for both the keys and values.


(staAccessPointBSSID) as extracted from the IID.


(staPhyAddress) as extracted from the IID.
