GENSNMPTREE(1)          FreeBSD General Commands Manual         GENSNMPTREE(1)

NAME
     gensnmptree - generate C and header files from a MIB description file

SYNOPSIS
     gensnmptree [-dEehlt] [-I directory] [-i infile] [-p prefix] [name ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The gensnmptree utility is used to either generate C language tables and
     header files from a MIB description or to numeric OIDs from MIB
     descriptions.  The first form is used only for maintaining the bsnmpd(1)
     daemon or for module writers.  The second form may be used by SNMP client
     program writers.

     If none of the options -e, -E or -t are used gensnmptree reads a MIB
     description from its standard input and creates two files: a C-file
     prefixtree.c containing a table used by bsnmpd(1) during PDU processing
     and a header file prefixtree.h containing appropriate declarations of the
     callback functions used in this table, the table itself and definitions
     for all enums.

     The following options are available:

     -d     Switch on debugging.

     -E     Extract enumerations and bit constructs.  In this mode the tool
            emits a header file that contains for each type given on the
            command line a C-enum definition and a preprocessor define that
            may be used to map values to strings.

     -e     gensnmptree expects MIB variable names (only the last component)
            on its command line.  It reads a MIB specification from standard
            input and for each MIB variable name emits three C preprocessor
            defines on its standard output:

            OIDX_name               This define can be used to initialize a
                                    struct asn_oid in the following way:

                                          const struct asn_oid oid_sysDescr =
                                          OIDX_sysDescr;

            OIDLEN_name             is the length of the OID.

            OID_name                is the last component of the OID.

     -h     Print a short help page.

     -I directory
            Add the named directory to the include path just before the
            standard include directories.

     -i infile
            Read from the named file instead of standard input.

     -l     Generate local preprocessor includes.  This is used for
            bootstrapping bsnmpd(1).

     -t     Instead of normal output print the resulting tree.

     -p prefix
            Prefix the file names and the table name with prefix.

MIBS
     The syntax of the MIB description file can formally be specified as
     follows:

            file := top | top file

            top := tree | typedef | include

            tree := head elements ')'

            entry := head ':' index STRING elements ')'

            leaf := head type STRING ACCESS ')'

            column := head type ACCESS ')'

            type := BASETYPE | BASETYPE '|' subtype | enum | bits

            subtype := STRING

            enum := ENUM '(' value ')'

            bits := BITS '(' value ')'

            value := INT STRING | INT STRING value

            head := '(' INT STRING

            elements := EMPTY | elements element

            element := tree | leaf | column

            index := type | index type

            typedef := 'typedef' STRING type

            include := 'include' filespec

            filespec := '"' STRING '"' | '<' STRING '>'

     BASETYPE specifies a SNMP data type and may be one of
           +o   NULL
           +o   INTEGER
           +o   INTEGER32 (same as INTEGER)
           +o   UNSIGNED32 (same as GAUGE)
           +o   OCTETSTRING
           +o   IPADDRESS
           +o   OID
           +o   TIMETICKS
           +o   COUNTER
           +o   GAUGE
           +o   COUNTER64

     ACCESS specifies the accessibility of the MIB variable (which operation
     can be performed) and is one of
           +o   GET
           +o   SET

     INT is a decimal integer and STRING is any string starting with a letter
     or underscore and consisting of letters, digits, underscores and minuses,
     that is not one of the keywords.

     The typedef directive associates a type with a single name.

     The include directive is replaced by the contents of the named file.

EXAMPLES
     The following MIB description describes the system group:

           include "tc.def"

           typedef AdminStatus ENUM (
                   1 up
                   2 down
           )

           (1 internet
             (2 mgmt
               (1 mibII
                 (1 system
                   (1 sysDescr OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET)
                   (2 sysObjectId OID op_system_group GET)
                   (3 sysUpTime TIMETICKS op_system_group GET)
                   (4 sysContact OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
                   (5 sysName OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
                   (6 sysLocation OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
                   (7 sysServices INTEGER op_system_group GET)
                   (8 sysORLastChange TIMETICKS op_system_group GET)
                   (9 sysORTable
                     (1 sysOREntry : INTEGER op_or_table
                       (1 sysORIndex INTEGER)
                       (2 sysORID OID GET)
                       (3 sysORDescr OCTETSTRING GET)
                       (4 sysORUpTime TIMETICKS GET)
                   ))
                 )
               )
             )
           )
