NAME ^

SNMP::Info::Layer2::Baystack - SNMP Interface to Nortel Ethernet (Baystack) Switches

AUTHOR ^

Eric Miller

SYNOPSIS ^

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

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

DESCRIPTION ^

Provides abstraction to the configuration information obtainable from a Nortel Ethernet Switch (Baystack) through SNMP.

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

my $baystack = new SNMP::Info::Layer2::Baystack(...);

Required MIBs

Inherited MIBs

See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::SONMP for its MIB requirements.

See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::NortelStack for its MIB requirements.

See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::RapidCity for its MIB requirements.

See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::LLDP for its MIB requirements.

See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::Layer3 for its MIB requirements.

GLOBALS ^

These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP

$baystack->vendor()

Returns 'nortel'

$baystack->model()

Cross references $baystack->id() to the SYNOPTICS-MIB and returns the results. 303s and 304s have the same ID, so we have a hack to return depending on which it is.

Returns BPS for Business Policy Switch

For others extracts and returns the switch numeric designation.

$baystack->os()

Returns 'baystack' or 'boss' depending on software version.

$baystack->os_bin()

Returns the firmware version extracted from sysDescr.

Overrides

$baystack->index_factor()

Required by SNMP::Info::SONMP. Number representing the number of ports reserved per slot within the device MIB.

Index factor on the Baystack switches are determined by the formula: Index Factor = 64 if (model = 470 or (os eq 'boss' and operating in pure mode)) or else Index factor = 32.

Returns either 32 or 64 based upon the formula.

TABLE METHODS ^

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

Overrides

$baystack->interfaces()

Returns reference to the map between IID and physical Port.

  Slot and port numbers on the Baystack switches are determined by the
  formula:
  
  port = (Interface index % Index factor)
  slot = (int(Interface index / Index factor)) + Slot offset
 
  The physical port name is returned as slot.port.
$baystack->i_ignore()

Returns reference to hash of IIDs to ignore.

$baystack->i_mac()

Returns the ifPhysAddress table entries.

Removes all entries matching '00:00:00:00:00:00' -- Certain revisions of Baystack firmware report all zeros for each port mac.

$baystack->i_name()

Crosses ifName with ifAlias and returns the human set port name if exists.

$poe->peth_port_ifindex()

Maps the pethPsePortTable to ifIndex by way of the ENTITY-MIB.

ENTITY-MIB Information

For older devices which do not support ENTITY-MIB, these methods emulate Physical Table methods using S5-CHASSIS-MIB. See "TABLE METHODS" in SNMP::Info::NortelStack for details on ns_e_* methods.

$baystack->e_index()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalDescr, this will try ns_e_index(). Note that this is based on entPhysicalDescr due to implementation details of SNMP::Info::Entity::e_index().

$baystack->e_class()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalClass, this will try ns_e_class().

$baystack->e_descr()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalDescr, this will try ns_e_descr().

$baystack->e_name()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalName, this will try ns_e_name().

$baystack->e_fwver()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalFirmwareRev, this will try ns_e_fwver().

$baystack->e_hwver()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalHardwareRev, this will try ns_e_hwver().

$baystack->e_parent()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalContainedIn, this will try ns_e_parent().

$baystack->e_pos()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalParentRelPos, this will try ns_e_pos().

$baystack->e_serial()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalSerialNum, this will try ns_e_serial().

$baystack->e_swver()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalSoftwareRev, this will try ns_e_swver().

$baystack->e_type()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalVendorType, this will try ns_e_type().

$baystack->e_vendor()

If the device doesn't support entPhysicalMfgName, this will try ns_e_vendor().

Topology information

Based upon the software version devices may support SynOptics Network Management Protocol (SONMP) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). These methods will query both and return the combination of all information. As a result, there may be identical topology information returned from the two protocols causing duplicate entries. It is the calling program's responsibility to identify any duplicate entries and remove duplicates if necessary.

$baystack->hasCDP()

Returns true if the device is running either SONMP or LLDP.

$baystack->c_if()

Returns reference to hash. Key: iid Value: local device port (interfaces)

$baystack->c_ip()

Returns reference to hash. Key: iid Value: remote IPv4 address

If multiple entries exist with the same local port, c_if(), with the same IPv4 address, c_ip(), it may be a duplicate entry.

If multiple entries exist with the same local port, c_if(), with different IPv4 addresses, c_ip(), there is either a non-SONMP/LLDP device in between two or more devices or multiple devices which are not directly connected.

Use the data from the Layer2 Topology Table below to dig deeper.

$baystack->c_port()

Returns reference to hash. Key: iid Value: remote port (interfaces)

$baystack->c_id()

Returns reference to hash. Key: iid Value: string value used to identify the chassis component associated with the remote system.

$baystack->c_platform()

Returns reference to hash. Key: iid Value: Remote Device Type
