NAME
       SNMP::Info::Layer2::Catalyst - SNMP Interface to	Cisco Catalyst devices
       running Catalyst	OS.

AUTHOR
       Max Baker

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

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

DESCRIPTION
       SNMP::Info subclass to provide information for Cisco Catalyst series
       switches	running	CatOS.

       This class includes the Catalyst	2920, 4000, 5000, 6000 (hybrid mode)
       families.

       This subclass is	not for	all devices that have the name Catalyst.  Note
       that some Catalyst switches run IOS, like the 2900 and 3550 families.
       Cisco Catalyst 1900 switches use	their own MIB and have a separate
       subclass.  Use the method above to have SNMP::Info determine the
       appropriate subclass before using this class directly.

       See SNMP::Info::device_type() for specifics.

       Note:  Some older Catalyst switches will	only talk SNMP version 1.
       Some newer ones will not	return all their data if connected via Version
       1.

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

	my $cat	= new SNMP::Info::Layer2::Catalyst(...);

   Inherited Classes
       SNMP::Info::Layer2::Cisco
       SNMP::Info::CiscoStack

   Required MIBs
       Inherited Classes' MIBs
	   See "Required MIBs" in SNMP::Info::Layer2::Cisco for	its own	MIB
	   requirements.

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

       These MIBs are found in the standard v2 MIBs from Cisco.

GLOBALS
       These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP

       $cat->os()
	   Returns 'catalyst'

       $cat->os_ver()
	   Tries to use	the value from SNMP::Info::CiscoStats->os_ver()	and if
	   it fails it grabs $cat->m_swver()->{1} and uses that.

       $cat->vendor()
	   Returns 'cisco'

       $cat->cisco_comm_indexing()
	   Returns 1.  Use vlan	indexing.

   Global Methods imported from	SNMP::Info::Layer2::Cisco
       See documentation in "GLOBALS" in SNMP::Info::Layer2::Cisco for
       details.

   Global Methods imported from	SNMP::Info::CiscoStack
       See documentation in "GLOBALS" in SNMP::Info::CiscoStack	for details.

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

   Overrides
       $cat->interfaces()
	   Returns the map between SNMP	Interface Identifier (iid) and
	   physical port name.

       $cat->i_name()
	   Returns reference to	hash of	iid to human set name.

	   "portName"

       $cat->i_physical()
	   Returns a map to IID	for ports that are physical ports, not vlans,
	   etc.

       $cat->bp_index()
	   Returns reference to	hash of	bridge port table entries map back to
	   interface identifier	(iid)

	   Crosses ("portCrossIndex") to ("portIfIndex") since some devices
	   seem	to have	problems with BRIDGE-MIB
