CONTENTS

Detailed Description

Helps you implement a table.

This handler helps you implement a table by doing some of the processing for you.

This handler truly shows the power of the new handler mechanism. By creating a table handler and injecting it into your calling chain, or by using the netsnmp_register_table() function to register your table, you get access to some pre-parsed information. Specifically, the table handler pulls out the column number and indexes from the request oid so that you don’t have to do the complex work to do that parsing within your own code.

To do this, the table handler needs to know up front how your table is structured. To inform it about this, you fill in a table_registeration_info structure that is passed to the table handler. It contains the asn index types for the table as well as the minimum and maximum column that should be used.

Function Documentation

int netsnmp_check_getnext_reply (netsnmp_request_info * request, oid * prefix, size_t prefix_len, netsnmp_variable_list * newvar, netsnmp_variable_list ** outvar)

checks the original request against the current data being passed in if its greater than the request oid but less than the current valid return, set the current valid return to the new value.

returns 1 if outvar was replaced with the oid from newvar (success). returns 0 if not.

NETSNMP_INLINE netsnmp_table_request_info* netsnmp_extract_table_info (netsnmp_request_info * request)

Extracts the processed table information from a given request.

Call this from subhandlers on a request to extract the processed netsnmp_request_info information. The resulting information includes the index values and the column number.

Parameters:

request populated netsnmp request structure

Returns:

populated netsnmp_table_request_info structure

netsnmp_table_registration_info* netsnmp_find_table_registration_info (netsnmp_handler_registration * reginfo)

netsnmp_mib_handler* netsnmp_get_table_handler (netsnmp_table_registration_info * tabreq)

Given a netsnmp_table_registration_info object, creates a table handler.

You can use this table handler by injecting it into a calling chain. When the handler gets called, it’ll do processing and store it’s information into the request->parent_data structure.

The table helper handler pulls out the column number and indexes from the request oid so that you don’t have to do the complex work of parsing within your own code.

Parameters:

tabreq is a pointer to a netsnmp_table_registration_info struct. The table handler needs to know up front how your table is structured. A netsnmp_table_registeration_info structure that is passed to the table handler should contain the asn index types for the table as well as the minimum and maximum column that should be used.

Returns:

Returns a pointer to a netsnmp_mib_handler struct which contains the handler’s name and the access method
