AUTHOR ^

Eric Miller

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $aruba = new SNMP::Info(
                          AutoSpecify => 1,
                          Debug       => 1,
                          DestHost    => 'myswitch',
                          Community   => 'public',
                          Version     => 2
                        )

DESCRIPTION ^

SNMP::Info::Layer3::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::Layer3::Aruba(...);

$aruba->i_up_admin()

Returns reference to map of IIDs to administrative status of the interface. Returns ifAdminStatus for Ethernet interfaces and wlanAPStatus for AP interfaces.

$aruba->i_mac()

Interface MAC address. Returns interface MAC address for Ethernet interfaces of ports and APs.

$aruba->i_duplex()

Returns reference to map of IIDs to current link duplex. Ethernet interfaces only.

Human-entered name for vlans.

$aruba->i_vlan()

Returns reference to map of IIDs to VLAN ID of the interface.

$aruba->i_vlan_membership()

Returns reference to hash of arrays: key = ifIndex, value = array of VLAN IDs. These are the VLANs for which the port is a member.

$aruba->bp_index()

Augments the bridge MIB by returning reference to a hash containing the index mapping of BSSID to device port (AP).

$aruba->fw_port()

Augments the bridge MIB by including the BSSID a wireless end station is communicating through (nUserApBSSID).

$aruba->fw_mac()

Augments the bridge MIB by including the wireless end station MAC (nUserApBSSID) as extracted from the IID.

$aruba->qb_fw_vlan()

Augments the bridge MIB by including wireless end station VLANs (nUserCurrentVlan).

Pseudo ENTITY-MIB information

These methods emulate ENTITY-MIB Physical Table methods using WLSX-WLAN-MIB and WLSX-SYSTEMEXT-MIB. APs are included as subcomponents of the wireless controller.

$aruba->e_index()

Creates an index of module.port to align with the indexing of the wlsxPsePortTable with a value of ifIndex. The module defaults 1 if otherwise unknown.

$aruba->peth_port_admin()

Administrative status: is this port permitted to deliver power?

wlsxPsePortAdminStatus

$aruba->peth_port_status()

Current status: is this port delivering power.

$aruba->at_paddr()

Adds MAC addresses extracted from the index of nUserApBSSID.

$aruba->at_netaddr()

Adds IP addresses extracted from the index of nUserApBSSID.
