       genddx -	Generates SNMP discovery instructions file for devdiscover

       torrus genddx --host=HOSTNAME | --hostfile=HOSTFILENAME \ [options...]

       genddx generates	the SNMP discovery instructions	file, which may	be
       later used as input for the devdiscover utility to produce the
       corresponding Torrus XML	configuration file. The	hostname(s) of
       router(s) to be included	in SNMP	discovery must be specified either
       using the --host	(for a single router) or --hostfile option.  In	the
       latter case the file HOSTFILENAME must contain a	space-separated	list
       of router hostnames. Hostnames may have the form	"host:devname" where
       "devname" is a symbolic device name.

       This utility is designed	to be used only	once, in order to generate the
       discovery XML canvas, for futher	manual editing.	It generates only
       basic set of parameters,	and there are much more	of those that you may
       use to customize	the discovery process.

       See torrus_ttproclist(1)	for a more flexible and	complex	DDX generator.

       More information	is available in	Torrus SNMP Discovery User Guide.
