SNMP_WLAN(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		  SNMP_WLAN(3)

NAME
     snmp_wlan -- wireless networking module for bsnmpd(1)

LIBRARY
     (begemotSnmpdModulePath."wlan" = /usr/lib/snmp_wlan.so)

DESCRIPTION
     The snmp_wlan module implements a private BEGEMOT-WIRELESS-MIB, which al-
     lows management of	virtual	wireless interfaces. The MIB defines objects
     similar to	the state data and configuration capabilities of ifconfig(8)
     for configuring virtual wireless interfaces.  Therefore one should	con-
     sider adding write	communities or loading the snmp_wlan module on systems
     where security is crucial.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     A short description of the	Tables and interesting objects in the MIB fol-
     lows.

     wlanInterfaceTable
		The table is used for creation and deletion of virtual wire-
		less interfaces. To add	a new interface, a SET should be exe-
		cuted on the wlanIfaceName column with value the desired name
		of the interface. Next the parent interface must be set	via
		wlanParentIfName column. Any optional parameters may be	set
		via the	wlanIfaceOperatingMode,	wlanIfaceFlags,	wlanIfaceBssid
		and wlanIfaceLocalAddress columns.  To finally create the in-
		terface	in the system, a SET with value	of active(1) to
		wlanIfaceStatus	column should be executed.  To destroy a wire-
		less interface a SET with value	of destroy(6) to the relevant
		wlanIfaceStatus	column should be executed.

     wlanIfParentTable
		The table contains information about the hardware capabilities
		of the parent of a wireless interface.

     wlanIfaceConfigTable
		The table is used to get or set	various	configuration parame-
		ters for a virtual wireless interface. Depending on the	oper-
		ating mode of the interface and	the hardware capabilities of
		the underlying hardware	interface, not all parameters and val-
		ues may	be supported.

     wlanIfacePeerTable
		The table contains information about the associated stations
		for interfaces operating as access points, or the stations
		identified as neighbors	in the IBSS for	interfaces operating
		in adhoc mode.

     wlanIfaceChannelTable
		Information about the active channels for the wireless inter-
		faces in the system.

     wlanIfRoamParamsTable
		The parameters that govern the roaming operation on the	wire-
		less interfaces.

     wlanIfTxParamsTable
		The parameters that govern the transmit	operation on the wire-
		less interfaces.

     wlanScanConfigTable
		The table that contains	a configuration	for channel scanning
		initiated via SNMP.

     wlanScanResultsTable
		The table contains the scan results from the last scan for
		each wireless interface	on the system.

     wlanIfaceStatisticsTable
		Summary	statistics for each wireless interface on the system.

     wlanWepInterfaceTable
		WEP configuration for the wireless interfaces on the system.

     wlanMACAccessControlTable
		Access Control configuration for wireless interfaces operating
		as access points.

     wlanMACAccessControlMACTable
		The table with Access Control MAC entries for which the	con-
		figured	Access Control Policy on wireless interfaces operating
		in Host	AP mode	is applied.  wlanMACAccessControlMACStatus
		column is used to add or delete	MAC ACL	entries. A set with
		value createAndGo(4) will add new entry, while with value de-
		stroy(6) will delete an	existing one.

     wlanMeshRoutingConfig
		The subtree contains system configuration related to Wireless
		Mesh Routing.

     wlanMeshInterfaceTable
		The table contains information for wireless interfaces operat-
		ing as wireless	mesh points.

     wlanMeshNeighborTable
		The table contains information for the neighbors of wireless
		interfaces operating in	mesh mode.

     wlanMeshRouteTable
		The mesh routing table for interfaces operating	as mesh
		points,	used for forwarding packets on a mesh network.
		wlanMeshRouteStatus column is used to add or delete entries in
		the mesh routing table for an interface. A set with value cre-
		ateAndGo(4) will add new entry,	while with value destroy(6)
		will delete an existing	one.

     wlanMeshStatsTable
		Summary	statistics for each virtual wireless interface operat-
		ing as mesh point.

     wlanMeshHWMPConfig
		The subtree contains system configuration related to Hybrid
		Wireless Mesh Protocol.

     wlanHWMPInterfaceTable
		The table contains HWMP	information for	wireless interfaces
		operating in mesh mode.

     wlanMeshHWMPStatsTable
		Summary	statistics for HWMP operation on interfaces operating
		as mesh	points.

RESTRICTIONS
     Not all information or configuration in the MIBs is currently available
     in	FreeBSD.  The values of	the following variables	carry no information:

     wlanStatsReset

		The description	of the MIB tree	implemented by snmp_wlan.

     /usr/share/snmp/mibs/BEGEMOT-WIRELESS-MIB.txt
		The private BEGEMOT-WIRELESS-MIB that is implemented by	this
		module.
