SNMP::Info::EDP is a subclass of SNMP::Info that provides an object oriented interface to EDP information through SNMP.

EDP is a Layer 2 protocol that allows a network device to advertise its identity and capabilities on the local network providing topology information.

Create or use a device subclass that inherits this class. Do not use directly.

Inherited Classes


Required MIBs



These are methods that return scalar values from SNMP
Is EDP is active in this device?


These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.
Returns the string value used to identify the chassis component associated with the remote system.


Returns the mapping to the SNMP Interface Table.
Returns remote IPv4 address.
Returns remote port ID
Returns the operating system version of the remote system.

Nulls are removed before the value is returned.
