smidump - dump SMI or SPPI modules in various formats
smidump [ -Vhqusmk ] [ -c file ] [ -o name ] [ -p module ] [ -l level ] [ -f format ] module(s)
The smidump program is used to dump the contents of a single MIB or PIB module or a collection of modules to stdout in a selectable output format. This format may be a simple tree of nodes, types or imported modules, but also a format fully compliant to SMIv1, SMIv2, SPPI or SMIng or CORBA IDL or C source code. Smidump can thus be used to convert modules from SMIv2 to SMIng and from SMIng to SMIv2, or to develop template based agent code.
-V, --version Show the smidump version and exit. -h, --help Show a help text and exit. The help text contains a list of all supported output formats. -c file, --config=file Read file instead of any other (global and user) configuration file. -f format, --format=format Use format when dumping a module. Supported output formats are described below. The default output format is SMIng. The format argument is case insensitive. -l level, --level=level Report errors and warnings up to the given severity level. See the smilint(1) manual page for a description of the error levels. The default error level is 3. -s, --severity Show the error severity in brackets before error messages. -m, --error-names Show the error names in braces before error messages. -o name, --output=name Write the output in one or multiple files instead of stdout. The file name(s) are derived from the name argument. Not all format support this option. -p module, --preload=module Preload the module module before reading the main module(s). This may be helpful if an incomplete main module misses to import some definitions. -q, --quiet Suppress comments from dumped modules. What kind of information gets suppressed depends on the output format. -u, --unified Dump a unified output in case of multiple module(s) instead of multiple concatenated output sections. This is not supported for all output formats. -k, --keep-going Continue as much as possible after serious parse errors. Note that the output generated after serious parse errors may be incomplete and should be used with care. module(s) These are the module(s) to be dumped. If a module argument represents a path name (identified by containing at least one dot or slash character), this is assumed to be the exact file to read. Otherwise, if a module is identified by its plain module name, it is searched according to libsmi internal rules. See smi_config(3) for more details.
The smidump program supports the following output formats: sming SMIng compliant format as defined in the SMIng Internet- Draft. smiv2 SMIv2 compliant format as defined in RFC 2578, RFC 2579, RFC 2580. smiv1 SMIv2 compliant format as defined in RFC 1155, RFC 1212, RFC 1215. sppi SPPI compliant format as defined in RFC 3159. If the underlying module is not SPPI, there might be some mandatory information missing. mosy Format generated by the mosy compiler. imports Import hierarchy of a module. types Types defined in a module. tree OID registration tree structure of a module. metrics Metrics derived from a module (experimental). identifiers List of identifiers defined in a module. compliances Compliance definitions with all included objects and notifications. corba CORBA IDL and OID definitions following the JIDM specification translation rules. netsnmp C source code files for usage within the net-snmp package (experimental). scli ANSI C manager stubs for usage within the scli package (experimental). cm Reverse engineered conceptual model in DIA XML file format (experimental). svg SVG diagram of a module (experimental). Use with -u when dumping multiple modules. jax Java AgentX sub-agent classes in separate files (experimental). perl Perl represention of the MIB module (contributed by Martin Schulz <firstname.lastname@example.org>). python Python dictionaries represention of the MIB module (contributed by Pat Knight <email@example.com>). xml SMI in XML format (experimental). xsd SMI in XML schema format (experimental). sizes SNMP best case / worst case RFC 3416 PDU sizes for typical PDUs excluding SNMP message and transport headers (experimental).
This example converts the SMIv2 module IF-MIB in the current directory to IF-MIB.sming in SMIng format. Note that the ./ prefix is used to ensure reading the module from the current directory and not from a place that libsmi guesses on its own. $ smidump -f sming ./IF-MIB > IF-MIB.sming
