                          AutoSpecify => 1,
                          Debug       => 1,
                          # These arguments are passed directly on to SNMP::Session
                          DestHost    => 'myswitch',
                          Community   => 'public',

                        )

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