Detailed Description

The basic theory goes something like this: In the past, with the original mib module api (which derived from the original CMU SNMP code) the underlying mib modules were passed very little information (only the truly most basic information about a request).

This worked well at the time but in todays world of subagents, device instrumentation, low resource consumption, etc, it just isn’t flexible enough. ’handlers’ are here to fix all that.

With the rewrite of the agent internals for the net-snmp 5.0 release, we introduce a modular calling scheme that allows agent modules to be written in a very flexible manner, and more importantly allows reuse of code in a decent way (and without the memory and speed overheads of OO languages like C++).

Functionally, the notion of what a handler does is the same as the older api: A handler is created and then registered with the main agent at a given OID in the OID tree and gets called any time a request is made that it should respond to. You probably should use one of the convenience helpers instead of doing anything else yourself though:

Most importantly, though, is that the handlers are built on the notion of modularity and reuse. Specifically, rather than do all the really hard work (like parsing table indexes out of an incoming oid request) in each module, the API is designed to make it easy to write ’helper’ handlers that merely process some aspect of the request before passing it along to the final handler that returns the real answer. Most people will want to make use of the instance, table, table_iterator, table_data, or table_dataset helpers to make their life easier. These ’helpers’ interpert important aspects of the request and pass them on to you.

For instance, the table helper is designed to hand you a list of extracted index values from an incoming request. THe table_iterator helper is built on top of the table helper, and is designed to help you iterate through data stored elsewhere (like in a kernel) that is not in OID lexographical order (ie, don’t write your own index/oid sorting routine, use this helper instead). The beauty of the table_iterator helper, as well as the instance helper is that they take care of the complex GETNEXT processing entirely for you and hand you everything you need to merely return the data as if it was a GET request. Much less code and hair pulling. I’ve pulled all my hair out to help you so that only one of us has to be bald.

This probably shouldn’t be used by the general public as the void * data may change as a handler evolves. Handlers should really advertise some function for you to use instead.

netsnmp_handler_registration * netsnmp_handler_registration_create (const char * name, netsnmp_mib_handler * handler, oid * reg_oid, size_t reg_oid_len, int modes)

creates a handler registration structure given a name, a access_method function, a registration location oid and the modes the handler supports.

If modes == 0, then modes will automatically be set to the default value of only HANDLER_CAN_DEFAULT, which is by default read-only GET and GETNEXT requests. A hander which supports sets but not row creation should set us a mode of HANDLER_CAN_SET_ONLY.

Note:

This ends up calling netsnmp_create_handler(name, handler_access_method)

Parameters:

name is the handler name and is copied then assigned to netsnmp_handler_registration->handlerName.
handler is a function pointer used as the access method for this handler registration instance for whatever required needs.
reg_oid is the registration location oid.
reg_oid_len is the length of reg_oid, can use the macro, OID_LENGTH
modes is used to configure read/write access. If modes == 0, then modes will automatically be set to the default value of only HANDLER_CAN_DEFAULT, which is by default read-only GET and GETNEXT requests. The other two mode options are read only, HANDLER_CAN_RONLY, and read/write, HANDLER_CAN_RWRITE.

o HANDLER_CAN_GETANDGETNEXT
o HANDLER_CAN_SET
o HANDLER_CAN_GETBULK

o HANDLER_CAN_RONLY (HANDLER_CAN_GETANDGETNEXT)
o HANDLER_CAN_RWRITE (HANDLER_CAN_GETANDGETNEXT | HANDLER_CAN_SET)
o HANDLER_CAN_DEFAULT HANDLER_CAN_RONLY

Returns:

Returns a pointer to a netsnmp_handler_registration struct. NULL is returned only when memory could not be allocated for the netsnmp_handler_registration struct.
