snmp_pdus - Encode and Decode Functions for SNMP PDUs
RFC1157, RFC1905 and/or RFC2272 should be studied carefully before using this module, snmp_pdus.
The module snmp_pdus contains functions for encoding and decoding of SNMP protocol data units (PDUs). In short, this module converts a list of bytes to Erlang record representations and vice versa. The record definitions can be found in the file snmp/include/snmp_types.hrl. If snmpv3 is used, the module that includes snmp_types.hrl must define the constant SNMP_USE_V3 before the header file is included. Example:
-define(SNMP_USE_V3, true). -include_lib("snmp/include/snmp_types.hrl").
Encoding and decoding must be done explicitly when writing your own Net if process.
dec_message([byte()]) -> Message
Decodes a list of bytes into an SNMP Message. Note, if there is a v3 message, the msgSecurityParameters are not decoded. They must be explicitly decoded by a call to a security model specific decoding function, e.g. dec_usm_security_parameters/1. Also note, if the scopedPDU is encrypted, the OCTET STRING encoded encryptedPDU will be present in the data field.
dec_message_only([byte()]) -> Message
Decodes a list of bytes into an SNMP Message, but does not decode the data part of the Message. That means, data is still a list of bytes, normally an encoded PDU (v1 and V2) or an encoded and possibly encrypted scopedPDU (v3).
dec_pdu([byte()]) -> Pdu
Decodes a list of bytes into an SNMP Pdu.
dec_scoped_pdu([byte()]) -> ScopedPdu
Decodes a list of bytes into an SNMP ScopedPdu.
dec_scoped_pdu_data([byte()]) -> ScopedPduData
EncryptedPDU = [byte()]
Decodes a list of bytes into either a scoped pdu record, or - if the scoped pdu was encrypted - to a list of bytes.
dec_usm_security_parameters([byte()]) -> UsmSecParams
Decodes a list of bytes into an SNMP UsmSecurityParameters
enc_message(Message) -> [byte()]
Encodes a message record to a list of bytes.
enc_message_only(Message) -> [byte()]
Message is a record where the data field is assumed to be encoded (a list of bytes). If there is a v1 or v2 message, the data field is an encoded PDU, and if there is a v3 message, data is an encoded and possibly encrypted scopedPDU.
enc_pdu(Pd) -> [byte()]
Encodes an SNMP Pdu into a list of bytes.
enc_scoped_pdu(ScopedPdu) -> [byte()]
Encodes an SNMP ScopedPdu into a list of bytes, which can be encrypted, and after encryption, encoded with a call to enc_encrypted_scoped_pdu/1; or it can be used as the data field in a message record, which then can be encoded with enc_message_only/1.
enc_usm_security_parameters(UsmSecParams) -> [byte()]
Encodes SNMP UsmSecurityParameters into a list of bytes.
