NAME ^

Net::Packet::STP - Spanning Tree Protocol layer 4 object

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Net::Packet::Consts qw(:stp);
   require Net::Packet::STP;

   # Build a layer
   my $layer = Net::Packet::STP->new(
      protocolIdentifier        => NP_STP_PROTOCOL_IDENTIFIER_STP,
      protocolVersionIdentifier => 0,
      bpduType                  => 0x00,
      bpduFlags                 => 0x00,
      rootIdentifier            => '1/00:11:22:33:44:55',
      rootPathCost              => 1,
      bridgeIdentifier          => '2/11:22:33:44:55:66',
      portIdentifier            => 0x0001,
      messageAge                => 1,
      maxAge                    => 10,
      helloTime                 => 1,
      forwardDelay              => 10,
   );
   $layer->pack;

   print 'RAW: '.unpack('H*', $layer->raw)."\n";

   # Read a raw layer
   my $layer = Net::Packet::STP->new(raw => $raw);

   print $layer->print."\n";
   print 'PAYLOAD: '.unpack('H*', $layer->payload)."\n"
      if $layer->payload;

DESCRIPTION ^

This modules implements the encoding and decoding of the Spanning Tree Protocol layer.

See also Net::Packet::Layer and Net::Packet::Layer4 for other attributes and methods.

ATTRIBUTES ^

protocolIdentifier - 16 bits
protocolVersionIdentifier - 8 bits
bpduType - 8 bits
bpduFlags - 8 bits
rootIdentifier - 64 bits (16 + 56)
rootPathCost - 32 bits
bridgeIdentifier - 64 bits (16 + 56)
portIdentifier - 16 bits
messageAge - 16 bits
maxAge - 16 bits
helloTime - 16 bits
forwardDelay - 16 bits

METHODS ^

new

Object constructor. You can pass attributes that will overwrite default ones. Default values:

protocolIdentifier: NP_STP_PROTOCOL_IDENTIFIER_STP

protocolVersionIdentifier: 0

bpduType: 0x00

bpduFlags: 0x00

rootIdentifier: '1/00:11:22:33:44:55'

rootPathCost: 1

bridgeIdentifier: '2/11:22:33:44:55:66'

portIdentifier: 0x0001

messageAge: 1

maxAge: 10

helloTime: 1

forwardDelay: 10

pack

Packs all attributes into a raw format, in order to inject to network. Returns 1 on success, undef otherwise.

unpack

Unpacks raw data from network and stores attributes into the object. Returns 1 on success, undef otherwise.

CONSTANTS ^

Load them: use Net::Packet::Consts qw(:stp);

NP_STP_HDR_LEN

STP header length.

NP_STP_PROTOCOL_IDENTIFIER_STP

Various supported STP protocol identifiers.
