snmpXdmid - Sun Solstice Enterprise SNMP-DMI mapper subagent


/usr/lib/dmi/snmpXdmid -s hostname [ -h ] [ -c config-dir ] [ -d debug-level ]


The snmpXdmid utility is a subagent in the Solstice Enter- prise Agent Desktop Management Interface package. It maps the SNMP requests forwarded by the Master Agent ( snmpdx(1M)) into one or more equivalent DMI requests. Further, it remaps the DMI response into SNMP response back to snmpdx. By default, snmpXdmid also forwards the DMI indi- cations as SNMP traps to snmpdx. The feature is configur- able and can be disabled by setting TRAP_FORWARD_TO_MAGENT=0 in the snmpXdmid configuration file, snmpXdmid.conf. This subagent runs as a daemon in the system. The subagent uses a set of .MAP files located in /var/dmi/map to map the SNMP Object Identifier (OID) into a corresponding DMI com- ponent. The map files are generated using the MIF-to-MIB utility, miftomib. They are read by snmpXdmid when a corresponding MIF file gets registered with the DMI Service Provider ( dmispd(1M)). The snmpXdmid.conf file is used for configuration informa- tion. Each entry in the file consists of a keyword followed by an equal sign (=), followed by a parameter string. The keyword must begin in the first position. A line beginning with a pound sign (#) is treated as a comment and the subse- quent characters on that line are ignored. The keywords currently supported are: WARNING_TIMESTAMP Indication subscription expiration, warning time. EXPIRATION_TIMESTAMP Indication subscription expiration timestamp. FAILURE_THRESHOLD DMISP retries before dropping indication due to comm errors. TRAP_FORWARD_TO_MAGENT 0 Drop indication at the subagent level. non-zero Forward indications as SNMP traps to snmpdx.
