SYNOPSIS

 # Let SNMP::Info determine the correct subclass for you. 
 my $alteon = new SNMP::Info(
                          AutoSpecify => 1,
                          Debug       => 1,
                          # These arguments are passed directly on to SNMP::Session
                          DestHost    => 'myswitch',
                          Community   => 'public',
                          Version     => 2
                        ) 
    or die "Can't connect to DestHost.\n";

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

DESCRIPTION

Abstraction subclass for Layer 2-7 load balancing switches running Nortel Networks' Alteon Web OS Traffic Control Software.

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

 my $alteon = new SNMP::Info::Layer3::AlteonAD(...);

TABLE ENTRIES

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

Overrides

$alteon->interfaces()

Returns reference to the map between IID and physical port.

Utilizes description for network interfaces. Ports are determined by formula (ifIndex mod 256).

$alteon->i_duplex()

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

$alteon->i_duplex_admin()

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

$alteon->i_vlan()

Returns reference to hash. Maps port VLAN ID to IIDs.

$alteon->i_name()

Maps (agPortCurCfgPortName) to port and returns the human set port name if exists.

$alteon->bp_index()

Returns a mapping between ifIndex and the Bridge Table.

RFC1213 Arp Cache Table (ipNetToMediaTable)

$alteon->at_index()

Returns reference to hash. Maps ARP table entries to Interface IIDs

(ipNetToMediaIfIndex)

$alteon->at_paddr()

Returns reference to hash. Maps ARP table entries to MAC addresses.

(ipNetToMediaPhysAddress)

$alteon->at_netaddr()

Returns reference to hash. Maps ARP table entries to IPs

(ipNetToMediaNetAddress)
